In 2015 we worked with people recovering from addictions, from the Recovery Project in Worthing. Participants gained confidence and learnt new skills on the sailing trips, using this as part of their programmes of recovery. This work helped inform our current Sailing Forward recovery sails.
We have worked with students and volunteer teachers from the Brighton-based Migrant English Project since 2013, taking people out on short sailing trips from Chichester harbour and Brighton marina. The trips combine relaxation, exercise and groupwork.
