The sight of small sailing dinghies being skippered single-handed by equally small children is a common sight from May to October on the Helford River. The children, aged 8 to 18, are involved in our innovative programme of accelerated learning, designed to build confidence and self-esteem which, in turn, has proven to accelerate academic learning. The fact that it also happens to be great fun is an added bonus.

Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust provides the opportunity for every child in the schools we serve to:

  • learn to kayak and sail single-handed
  • discover love and respect for the sea
  • gain confidence for life
  • accelerate academic learning

We also offer training in sailing and powerboating for adults.
