Ten day experience of a lifetime for 40 students on the Tall Ship Stavros S Niarchos

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 - 1 Comment »

Supported by HSBC’s community investment programme, 40 young people aged 14 to 15 have been selected from schools nationwide to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to helm the Tall Ship Stavros S Niarchos.

Having set sail from Southampton on Tuesday 16 September, the 200 ft. ship will sail along the south coast, visit a European port in France, Belgium or The Netherlands, before sailing up the Thames on Wednesday 24 September past iconic landmarks and under Tower Bridge.

The students will take part in all aspects of sailing during the 10-night voyage.

Working together, the young people from Fleetwood High School, Lancashire; Baverstock Academy, Birmingham; Cyfarthfa High School, Merthyr Tydfil, Wales and Brune Park, Gosport will be living in cabins of eight, be assigned to watches, and will get up at 4am to complete duties.

Lorraine Thomas, Senior Manager HSBC Global Education and UK Community Investment said:

“We are delighted to continue our support of Tall Ships Youth Trust for a 14th year.  The Voyage of Achievement not only provides young people with a chance to improve their self-confidence, develop team working skills and meet new people: for some it is a life-changing experience.

“The trip also provides an opportunity for HSBC employees to lend their support through mentoring, coaching and improving their personal leadership skills.”

HSBC employees will also join the voyage as mentors to the young people, learn to sail the ship and develop their own leadership and influencing skills.

Over the past 13 years, more than 700 young people have taken part in the HSBC supported voyages and a number have returned to work as volunteers for the Tall Ships Youth Trust charity. Others have gone on to develop a career within the marine industry or taken up sailing as a lifelong interest.

Tim Law, Marketing and Operations Director of the Tall Ships Youth Trust said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the young people on board. The pupils will be given the opportunity to develop their personal skills and abilities, and will leave the voyage with more confidence and motivation, new friendships and big smiles.”

TENACITY OF BOLTON JOINS THE TALL SHIPS YOUTH TRUST FLEET

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 - 2 Comments »

The Tall Ships Youth Trust are delighted to announce that the Trust has been gifted a sail training vessel by Bolton School, “Tenacity of Bolton”, a 15 metre Ketch built in 2007.

She has been operated until this year by Bolton School as a sailing training vessel for their pupils, but has not been fully utilised. Bolton School therefore were looking for a sail trainer that could operate her more cost effectively whilst still making available berths for Bolton School pupils.

The Bolton School Governors decided to gift the vessel to the Trust adding that the proposal “most closely fitted the  Governor’s requirements for the future operations of the ketch, and for the reciprocal arrangements for our pupils.”

Tim Law, Marketing and Operations Director said “We are delighted to have Tenacity joining our fleet and look forward to developing our sail training programme in the North West of Britain.”

The Trust plans to bring Tenacity into service early 2015 and is currently putting together a voyage schedule.

This is great news for the Tall Ships Youth Trust whose work with young people in UK is gaining momentum and strength. Through bursaries and fundraising they are providing young people with the opportunity to experience sail training, taking them out of ordinary environments to help develop their life skills and preparing them for their future.

If you are interested in finding out more information about Tall Ships Youth Trust and the group opportunities for young people, please get in touch.
