Helen Mary R

 

The Mórvargh Sailing Project provides sail training voyages for young people on the 57ft Tall Ship, Helen Mary R. They sail from SuttonHarbour in Plymouth and ports on the South West coast. Their sail training voyages promote leadership, resourcefulness, and teamwork and they know that they can make a profound impact in a young person’s vision of themselves.

The vessel takes 10-12 young people aged 14-25 and whilst on board they are involved with all aspects of sailing from hoisting and reefing the sails, to helming, to navigating as well as being responsible for the domestic chores! Imagine overcoming the challenges of baking bread whilst at 30° of heel!

The Mórvargh Sailing Projects guiding principle is simple, to;

Use Sail Training to Inspire & Change Lives.
