Morvargh Sailing Project
16th May 2014
Mórvargh Sailing Project provides sail training voyages for young people on our 57ft Tall Ship, Helen Mary R. We sail from Sutton Harbour in Plymouth and ports on the South West coast. Our sail training voyages promote leadership, resourcefulness, and teamwork and we know that they can make a profound impact in a young person’s vision of themselves.
90% of young people taking part learn something about themselves which will make a positive change in their life .
The vessel takes 10-12 young people aged 14-25 and whilst on board they are involved with all aspects of sailing from hoisting and reefing the sails, to helming, to navigating as well as being responsible for the domestic chores! It’s great to watch the young people overcome the challenges of baking bread whilst at 30° of heel!
We have delivered sail training voyages to a number of Plymouth and South West secondary schools, youth offending teams, social services departments, and local scout groups.
We exist to provide sail training voyages on our Tall Ship for young people aged 14-25 from the South West of England.
