Everything you need to know to prepare for and get excited about your Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust return trip adventure.Contact the team
Young people’s stories are pivotal to more young people being inspired to come sailing with the Trust. Photos and interviews from trips are key to this.
You should have received a Media Consents - Images & Interviews form by email, asking if you would be happy to be photographed, filmed and/or interviewed on your trip and explaining the ways these might be used.
If you haven’t done so yet please complete and submit it to let us know.
Remember: Your consent can be withdrawn or changed at any time.
We need to understand in what ways the Trust has an impact on young people’s wellbeing. You can help us.
If you are aged 14+ at the time of your trip, 2 weeks before, just after and 3 months post-trip, we will send you a short questionnaire. Please complete and return each of these so we can see how we can make a bigger difference to more young lives.
We would like to send the questions directly to all young people, who will be aged 14+ on their trip. If you are a parent/guardian, and are happy for us to do this, please tell us on the Media Consent form. We will only use these contact details for sending the questionnaires. All other contact will remain with the parent/guardian.
If you are taking replacement Hydrocortisone and have an Emergency Hydrocortisone Injection, are at risk of an anaphylactic allergic reaction and have an emergency adrenaline auto-injector or have been told we require a blood count within 7 or 28 days before the trip (depending on your circumstances), there are some other things to do too.

In partnership with specialist youth charity, Mind Over Cancer, young people who need further support can apply to take part in new monthly free mental wellbeing sessions between October and May.
Would you like to join a free online group where you can remember the good times with the Trust and talk with people who understand about some of the issues it may have raised? Maybe you just want to chat to new friends who 'get it'.
The groups will be full of care, kindness, joyfulness and friendship. It's a place to learn, process and reflect and to look after your wellbeing. Think you could benefit? Find out more and apply now
CLOSING DATE: Friday 29 September 2023.
If you have other any or a combination of the other symptoms, but do feel well enough to go to school/work and do your normal activities, please contact us to discuss.
Anyone taking part in a trip in 2023 may be asked to do a Lateral Flow Test ahead of joining their trip.
This decision will be made in the context of what is happening in wider society and the rate of community transmission at the time.
Please click here - Vaccinations and Testing - for the latest information. This page will be updated if there are any changes before your trip.
We will also contact you as soon as possible if anything is needed for or affects your trip.
Everything else, for example, if masks or an extra lateral flow test are required at any point, the Trust will look after.
Please be reassured if COVID stops you coming on your trip this year, it will not affect your chance to come back next year.Call the team Email the team
