The annual winter refit of all three Cirdan vessels ensures they are operationally sound and looking good for the season that follows. This year is no exception with a new boiler for the heating on Queen Galadriel, new winches on Faramir, new upholstery on Duet and metres of new rope and sail cloth across the fleet.
Many of the popular dates are already filled with voyages including local East Coast passages and further afield to Hartlepool and the South Coast with Queen Galadriel and Faramir sailing in company to Boulogne with a mixture of French and English students. Queen Galadriel is being used a stage for a youth theatre production at the Poole Boat Show and Duet is promoting the Trust by taking part in the Round the Island Race.
Various other dates and events are available as the season progresses for any group looking for a positive experience to help their young people gain confidence, work as a team and develop social skills. Our Voyage of Discovery Fund provides grants to help groups participate in this experience.
