Last year, the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, with support from the Reardon Smith Nautical Trust and Challenge Wales, invited students to participate on a number of fully funded sailing voyages aboard a 72' round-the-world 'Challenge' yacht.
Whilst aboard, students gained hands on experience in helming, keeping watch, navigation, sail handling, line handling, safety at sea, dinghy rowing and teamwork.
These voyages provide a unique learning environment that helps young people develop personal skills, life skills and confidence. These attributes will distinguish them in the future, and will help them enter the world of work.
Challenge Wales sails with up to 12 passengers and six crew. For more details on Challenge Wales, visit www.challengewales.org. Fully and part funded longer voyages are available for Cardiff University students under 25, subject to availability. If interested, please contact Mr Ian Fryett.
