The Norfolk Boat
Providing bursaries for offshore sail training to young people and those with disabilities, in Norfolk and the surrounding area
Being a member of a ship’s crew on a sail training voyage offers a powerful and effective environment for personal development by experiencing the challenge and adventure of life at sea.
Working closely with schools, colleges and youth groups, The Norfolk Boat enables people from all backgrounds to enjoy a life changing experience.
Bursaries for berth fees
Contributing upwards of £25,000 each year, the Charity covers part of the berth fees and encourages the participants to fundraise as much as possible for themselves whilst offering help in identifying other fundraising opportunities.
Whilst everyone is expected and encouraged to raise as much money as possible themselves the Charity has never turned anyone away and since 1982 it has helped around 150 people every year.
Who we help
Young people aged 12 to 24 years old and adults with disabilities who live in Norfolk and the surrounding area can apply for funding.
