The sight of small sailing dinghies being skippered single-handed by equally small children is common 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.
Financial contributions from our friends are vital to enable the Trust to continue its work. If you would like to become a Friend of the Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust, please complete the Gift Aid form and return it to our Treasurer:
