Availability for Individuals and Special Offers

To support our charitable work we offer RYA Sail Training voyages for individuals aged 13 to 19 years during the school holidays, and occasional voyages specifically for adults.

We are a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Approved Activity Provider and run DofE Gold Residentials throughout the sailing season.

We also run several voyages exclusively for home educated students, which follow the same itinerary as our adventure sailing voyages. Contact us for more information.

For information about activities for families, friends and colleagues, visit our private and corporate groups page.  A team experience is perfect for getting together, whether its team building, just for fun, or to celebrate a special occasion, such as a milestone birthday or anniversary.

To book or find out more, contact us on 01752 823007, email info@theislandtrust.org.uk, or use the enquiry form at the bottom of this page.

All voyages start and finish in Plymouth, unless stated otherwise, and follow the RYA Cruising syllabus.

Prices include accommodation, use of waterproofs, safety equipment and all meals on board.

All voyages and courses are operated by The Island Trust’s trading subsidiary Island (Cutter) Ltd.
