RSYC Trust


The above picture shows the latest group of Young Carers from the New Forest area who attended a sailing taster session. The group sailed on 2 Sonars and took part in the Parade of Sail at Southampton Sailing Week. Here they are being presented with a RSYC Trust certificate to recognise the event. They are aged between 8 and 15 and each one of them is responsible for caring for a family member or relative.

The RSYC Trust has taken many such young carers on taster sailing sessions and arenow planning to extend this to RYA dinghy sailing courses, taster sailing on larger keel boats , racing and opportunities to sail on tall ships sail training vessels.

To do this we need additional funding and volunteers to help.

If you can help with a donation, running a fund raising event or by joining the Commodores 50:50 club it would be appreciated and enable us to take even more young people sailing.

We also need volunteers to help with our sailing events, making funding applications, working with our benficiaries and our partners to organise and run the events.

If you can help with a few hours of your time or with funding please contact me on
