The Challenger fleet joined the Tall Ships Youth Trust in 2008 and 2009 from Challenge Business where they took part in the BT Global Challenge and the Global Challenge. Sailing around the world twice ‘the wrong way’, the event claimed the motto “The World’s Toughest Yacht Race”.

The fleet of four is now used by the Trust for ‘The Ultimate Sail Training Experience’. Although focused on young people between the ages of 12-25, the Trust also offers exciting adult voyages for anyone up to the age of 80 visiting a range of destinations including the UK and the Caribbean Leeward and Windward Islands.
