New Zealand Sailing Trust


The New Zealand Sailing Trust empowers young New Zealanders and bring to life the values of leadership, teamwork, courage and environmental awareness. Since 2008 the New Zealand Sailing Trust has delivered lifetime experiences to over 8000 young people. Participants develop an appreciation of what it took to sail these yachts around the world and complete a challenge with a sense of respect and admiration for their fellow sailors and the sea. Participants come away with an understanding of who they are, respect for their peers, what their strengths are and how it feels to be challenged out of your comfort zone. The programmes are designed to bring out the best in everyone and empower those who participate.
