Help with costs
The Voyage of Discovery Fund
The Cirdan Sailing Trust has operated a Voyage Funding Scheme for 30 years to provide financial assistance for groups wishing to sail on our vessels but are unable to cover the full costs involved.
The Voyage of Discovery Fund is designed to support youth leaders so initially a verbal decision on what funding will available can be given at the time of booking. This will be followed by a simple application form in which we ask for verification of the group's needs - this information is important to us as it is fed back to the Bursary donors. It is a condition of our Voyage of Discovery Fund however, that all benefiting groups must submit a thank you letter and report after their voyage. The report need only be short but many of our groups are only too pleased to put together packages including DVDs, young people's letters, log book entries and photographs.
At the end of the season, The Trust collates all the reports into presentation packs which are then submitted to the funders of our Voyage Bursary scheme - it is this feedback that secures continued funding from our supporters.
