Cirdan Trust - Sailing Voyage
9 young people from The Southend Virtual School as well as 2 volunteers attended an off shore sailing residential trip during the summer holidays. The adventure involved our young people becoming part of the crew and taking an active part in all aspects of operating the ship and life on board
The young people successfully sailed from Poole along the south coast over the course of 6 days at sea which involved a challenging night sail where all young people were responsible for navigating through difficult rough seas.
The young people’s attitude was outstanding throughout the trip, working effectively as a team, building resilience and overcoming personal challenges. The trip was a great success and the Virtual School are committed to running the trip again in the future.
