Biography


Challenge Wales originally raced around the world, twice, in the Global Challenge Yacht Race before being used for sail training. Sailing with up to 18 people on board, she has taken part in Tall Ships Races and Regattas, Small Ships Races, and undertakes sail training activities predominantly around Wales, Ireland and the South Coast of England.

Challenge Wales has been in operation since 2009 and has worked with young people and groups, aged 12-25 years, from a variety of backgrounds, including visually impaired, autistic, those not in education, employment or training, schools, youth clubs and groups, uninformed groups, those taking part in the DofE Award Scheme, and those just looking for an adventure and fun while making new friends and challenging themselves. Bursary funding is often available to help young people jump on board.
