Girlguiding members are setting sail on Saturday 26th July on a voyage that will take them sailing to the Channel Islands.  This is 4th year Girlguiding members have taken a voyage with the sail training organisation, Tall Ships Adventures.

The groups have been given the opportunity to crew two 72ft round the world Challenger Yachts. They will get involved in all aspects of sailing from steering the yacht, setting the sails to cooking and cleaning. Sailing provides an excellent opportunity to encourage team work and strengthen communication, as well as a having fun out on the water.

Heather and Mark Scoynes, Girlguiding Boating Coordinators will be on board along with their daughter, Charlotte (a Guide Leader ) who is a volunteer Watch Leader for Tall Ships Adventures.

Charlotte, 19, said: “This will be the third time I’ve embarked on this voyage and I’m really looking forward to it. I love getting outdoors and trying new challenges and it’s been brilliant to have this opportunity through guiding.”

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK, with 553,633 members. It offers girls from all background and circumstances fun and exciting activities, encouraging them to be happy, self-confident and curious about the world they live in.

The Tall Ships Youth Trust, formerly The Sail Training Association, is a registered charity founded in 1956 that is dedicated to the personal development of young people through the crewing of ocean going sail training vessels.
