Duet, our 100 year gaff rigged yawl is competing in the 2013 Fastnet Race. The vessel has been chartered by MCA Marine Surveyor and Naval Architect, David Cannell with the intention of raising Cirdan’s profile and generally supporting our work with young people.
David has selected most of his crew for the event but may still be on the lookout for keen sailors to undertake the challenge with him. There is a cost involved but this should be discussed directly with David Cannell who can be contacted on 01206 823337 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you prefer to support the challenge rather than take part you can donate via Just Giving.
All monies raised will help to further the work of The Cirdan Sailing Trust.
To celebrate the centenary of sail training benefactor Hammond Innes (born 15 July 1913) ASTO will be arranging a special Small Ships Race in 2013. This race is to take place from Monday 26 August to Friday 30 August sailing from Ipswich to Cowes.
Our vessel Duet will take part in the event during one of our voyages for individuals aimed at Gold Duke of Edinburgh students and other like minded youngsters aged 16+.
If you are interested in taking part please contact our Reservations Office on 01621 776684 / email@example.com.
In recent years we have been asked to run an increasing number of voyages for groups outside of our normal youth age range. These may be for special needs adults including rehabilitation groups, hostel groups or those in residential care.
Whilst the disadvantaged adult groups that sail with The Trust are few in numbers compared to those made up of young people, the benefits gained from the experience are comparable and of no less importance with regard to development and training. An area of our Voyage of Discovery Fund is available to these groups if their funding is restricted.
