We are sailing

Family Awards

Ocean Youth Trust South is a charity that uses sailing to help young people gain confidence, communicate better, experience teamwork and develop resilience. Each year they work with around 450 your people, taking them to sea as active members in a purpose-built sail training vessel.

Andy Wates brought the project to the attention of Wates Giving. We were delighted to give an award to help the Trust buy and fit out a new training boat called ‘Prolific’ which will come into service in 2017.
