Our Activities

We offer activities for schools, individuals and families on the Helford River and at Trevassack Lake 

Support Us

The Children’s Sailing Trust is a charity founded on the Helford River, Cornwall in 1997 with an ambition to make sailing accessible to all. Through sailing young people develop attributes that are helpful in life and learning: how to be resilient and work with others; solve problems and make decisions independently. They find out about the natural world and how to keep themselves safe on the water. Starting out in sailing requires equipment and expertise. Support us in our ambition to become the leading teachers of inclusive sailing for 8-16 year olds and create the next generation of sailors.
