Ocean Youth Trust North Charity (OYT)

In partnership with Rotary in our region we arrange two specific 5 day residential courses in August for young people between the age of 14 and 18 aboard the James Cook sailing ketch based at North Shields.

Similar to RYLA we sponsor and recruit an awardee to take part in the programme which provides interpersonal skills, leadership development along with the opportunity to lean to sail and gain a “Competent Crew” RYA sailing certificate.

One person we sponsored loved it so much they went on to gain their skippers ticket and built a carrier running sail training-flotilla holidays in the med. More information about OYT can be found at www.OYT.org
