Visually Impaired Voyages

Fun activities for young people

visually impaired voyages

Through the BIG Lottery Fund, Challenge Wales is offering visually impaired young people and their buddy’s fully funded day and residential voyages.

The voyages will follow the same format as all our other sail training voyages with some adaptations to the boat to aid visually impaired young people.
The voyages will enable young people to develop confidence, have the same experience as anyone else on board and give them the opportunity to make new friends.

The funding covers the full cost of the voyage for the visually impaired young person as well as a visually able ‘buddy’. This will allow them to work together as a team, taking part in everything from hoisting the sails to steering the boat.

Our visually impaired voyages also include assistance with transport to and from the boat, making it even easier for you to take part. All food/refreshments/meals, marina fees, waterproof trousers and jackets, accommodation and lifejackets are all included too.

Individuals or small groups (with up to two group leaders) can join us on our sailing voyages.

Like all our voyages, no sailing experience is necessary to take part. One of our voyages will involve meeting up with other sail training vessels from all over the world as part of the Tall Ships Regatta in Falmouth, an opportunity to meet up with like-minded young individuals and a fantastic life-changing experience for those involved.

For further information on our visually impaired voyages our Information Pack has all the details.

To sail on one of these voyages just; select a date, call the office on 029 20 704 657 or email us to check availability and book, we’ll send you some paperwork to complete, arrange transport if required to get you to the boat, and then send you joining instructions with details of what to bring with you! It’s that easy.
