Support a Trip

At Lynher CIC it’s important that everyone should be able to experience sailing on board a historic vessel. That’s why we hope you will be able to Support a Trip. This will enable the charity or group below to raise enough money to come onboard Lynher.

If you know of a group who would benefit from Lynher’s voyages or workshops, get in touch to start fundraising!

Did you know?

  • Studies have found that young people who have taken part in sail training show increased social interaction and an improved ability to communicate with others.
  • Sailing presents challenges that require you to step out of your comfort zone on a daily basis.
  • Surprisingly, learning about the technical aspects of sailing isn’t the most important thing about sail training. However, you will learn a lot, which you’ll find interesting and it’ll help you improve your knowledge and understanding.
  • Sail training knows no borders. One of the greatest aspects of our Tall Ships Races and Regattas is the number of friends you’ll make from different cultural backgrounds.
