Our Projects

Learning to sail is a great way for a young person to develop confidence and skills, but it is often seen as a pastime for well-off families. We target the most deserving youngsters and offer them this opportunity with no cost barrier.

Schools Project                                       From April to October we run educational sessions for pupils from local schools. These are ‘hands-on’ trips. The children can steer the boat, conduct safety drills, look out for wildlife and learn more about historic Plymouth and its maritime environment.

Sailing Club                                             

Our sailing season runs from Easter through to October and every Thursday and Saturday we run our Sailing Club.Anyone aged 8-19 can come along and learn to sail with Horizons! Just turn up at our hut in Mayflower Marina and sign in.

Inclusive Activities                              

With our specially-adapted powerboat ‘Friendship of Plymouth’ and our Hawk 20 sailing boats, no-one is excluded from the excitement of getting out on the water. Our staff and volunteers welcome children with a wide range of abilities and behaviours.
