Charity Yacht Regatta - Tall Ships Youth Trust - 2011
The Tall Ships Youth Trust, formerly The Sail Training Association, is a registered charity founded in 1956 that is dedicated to the personal development of young people through the crewing of ocean going sail training vessels.
It is the UK’s oldest and largest sail training charity for young people aged 12-25.
Over 95,000 trainees have sailed 1.8 million nautical miles on TSYT’s fleet – a 60m brig, Stavros S Niarchos, four 22m ocean-going Challenger Yachts, a 19m Catamaran and before them, a 60m brig Prince William and two 37m schooners Malcolm Miller and Sir Winston Churchill.
On average, 70% of the young people sailing with TSYT are disadvantaged or disabled.
Each Year, RBYC Members have taken part in the Yacht Regatta as a formal RBYC Cruising Event and pretty good at winning the silverware too!
November 04 - 06 2011 saw RBYC Members once again take a prize for coming in third overall in the races. Well Done!!
