Challenge Wales is a 72-ft round-the-world racing yacht and Wales’s largest sail training vessel. Sail training teaches young people aged 12 – 25 years personal and social skills such as team-building, communication, respect for others and self esteem by placing them in a challenging, yet positive, environment. The experience is life-changing for many of the young people enabling them to reach their full potential.
The charity, Challenge Wales, is run by volunteers. Based in Cardiff the charity works with a wide range of groups and individuals and provides a bursary fund for young people, if eligible, to use to enable them to step on-board.
