Sail Training Ireland is the National Sail Training Organisation and a Charity with youth development at its core. Our Vision is to Change Lives by Creating Access to Sail Training Voyages for Young People from all Backgrounds and Abilities on the Island of Ireland.
Sail training requires participants to confront many demanding challenges, both physical and emotional. It is an activity that inspires self-confidence and the acceptance of personal responsibility. It promotes an acceptance of others whatever their social or cultural backgrounds, and develops a willingness to take controlled risks. For most who undertake sail training on Tall Ships it is a positive life-changing experience.
