“On my first trip we had three 11 and 12-year-old-girls, and the second trip we had six 15 to 17-year-old guys. Needless to say, there were some clear differences between these two groups. Yet I witnessed the same joy and excitement when we got the sails up.
“On both trips there were individuals who were initially less confident to steer the boat or operate the winches. However, with the guidance and encouragement from the skippers and first mates they got fully involved.
"It was so special to see the joy and sense of achievement the individuals experience when taking on these new challenges and surprising themselves with what they were capable of.
“As part of my role at Musto, I am developing Musto’s t-shirt competition tee for next year’s trips. On my first trip it was great to see the girls coming up with their competition entries and discussing their first experience of sailing. I was excited to see the young people so creative and enthused to come up with the next year’s design.
