Trinity is a leading sailing charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged young people through the challenge, adventure and achievement of offshore sail training. Each year the charity helps several hundred young people discover the extent of their own capabilities, develop essential life skills and start to overcome the challenges they face with new confidence and self-belief.

From our base in South Devon, Trinity operates a small fleet of traditional sailing vessels which are all nationally important examples of the UK’s maritime heritage. Through our youth programmes, sailing courses, charter and training initiatives we help preserve these unique vessels for future generations.
