The adventure gave them the chance to see a stunning region of Scotland many had not witnessed before.

 

The trip was only possible due to the OYT’s “On Course with Cashback” project and the commitment of staff, parents and pupils involved.

 

OYT Scotland enables young people from all over Scotland with the opportunity to sail, building skills such as teamwork, confidence, and resilience.

 

This project is transforming 288 young people's lives over three years thanks to an award from the "CashBack for Communities" scheme - the Scottish Government's proceeds of crime fund.

 

Over the past 18 years, OYT Scotland has grown to become one of the leading sail training charities in the world. With two sail training vessels, Alba Explorer and Alba Venturer, OYT Scotland completed 55 voyages with 552 young people in 2016.
