SUPETA offers young people of all backgrounds, abilities and disabilities the rare chance to experience sailing on an ocean going yacht.
They will learn new skills and working as a team stretch their abilities physically and mentally. There is no standing on street corners with a ‘whatever attitude’ while on board. They have to go for it and quickly becoming skilled crew raising and trimming sails to get the yacht to move speedily through the water by day and night.
Each person learning to steer in all weathers making the best use of wind and tides. Under engine power control a very large yacht when in harbour. Plot courses to where they want to go and get there
Safety is paramount with qualified and youth trained adult crew onboard. Previous experience has found young people relish such activities and go ashore better people.
Also hope to encourage adults less able to enjoy under the ‘Sailability’ type schemes. Special drop down access steps have been fitted and SUPETA has a large sheltered cockpit.
This will be the only Scout charity yacht of its type on this stretch of the south coast so a unique facility.
You want adventure, fun and action, SUPETA is waiting for you!
