Funding for voyages through our various funding schemes is made available through our network of youth and community organisations.
In 2016 we launched a new process where youth organisations wanting to nominate candidates for a Sail Training opportunity can sign up for membership. We rely on these “Nominating Organisations” to identify young people that are in need of and will benefit from our funded opportunities. They are able to offer important support to trainees during their preparation for voyages and when they return from the voyage.
This helps to maximise the benefits of the experience for the participants.
The benefits include:
- Access to trainee funding
- Early notification of upcoming voyages
- Reservation of berths on board (Contracted)
- Quarterly newsletter
The nominating organisations act as a reference for their trainees and along with Sail Training Ireland will support and encourage fundraising opportunities. If your organisation is interested in becoming a Nominating Organisation, please download this form.
