The Challenge Wales charity works with young people helping to develop their life skills to improve their employment prospects.

This is achieved through sailing on Challenge Wales | Wales’ Tall Ship (a 72-foot ex round-the-world racing yacht) and Adventure Wales (a 60-foot ocean-going schooner).Voyages range from one day experience sails to longer UK residential voyages and for those looking for real adventure we offer overseas and further afield experiences.

We also take adults sailing aged 18 – 75 years on a variety of voyages which help fund the predominantly volunteer run charity.
