Good luck to Grace and her team from OYT North

Good luck to Grace Metcalfe, the Skipper of James Cook of Ocean Youth Trust North, and friends, who are taking up the challenge of cycling coast to coast from Whitehaven to Tynemouth, a 140 mile adventure in under three days. They are raising money for OYT North which helps young people, irrespective of their background, escape the difficulties they face at home. They acquire a range of life skills whilst working as part of a team and rising to the challenge of the sea. OYT North offers young people an experience that changes their lives and inspires their futures. The Norfolk Boat supports young people from Norfolk who sail in James Cook.

Two Norfolk Air Cadets, Alice Cater and Harley Crisp, are off to the North West of Scotland to sail with Ocean Youth Trust Scotland for seven days this week.

“Where next, Skipper?”

Adventures Offshore are hosting six young Explorer scouts from the Fens. They are taking part in the Tall Ships Race between the 12thand 19thAugust.

If you have already sailed with us and you want to share your stories or photos please get in touch and we may feature them in the blog or put them on our Facebook page. Your experiences might inspire someone else to try offshore sailing.

So far this season a NACRO group of 16 young people from the west of our area sailed in April for five days; 12 young people from Worlingham Middle School sailed for a week in May; and Open Academy in Norwich took a group of 12 for a five day sail in May. We are looking forward to showing you their photos on this blog.

Bon Voyage to the group of 13 from North Norfolk’s Flagship Foyer who set sail today with the Cirdan Trust.
