What could you do with a week?
For over forty years the Morning Star Trust has been taking young people to sea for life-changing adventures. Sailing on our purpose built training vessels you'll do more than learn to sail, you'll learn about yourself and the world you live in.
Morning Star Trust is a Royal Yachting Association Recognised Training Centre and Duke of Edinburgh's Award Approved Activity Provider, so sailing on a voyage with MST could fulfil the requirements of the Expedition or Residential sections of the DofE, as well as earning you a recognised RYA qualification.
We're committed to ensuring that everyone can experience sailing, irrespective of cost, and so there is lots of bursary and financial support available to enable you to sail with us.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we have been forced to suspend the start of our season until mid-June. This has left us with a loss of £16,000 over the next three months. If we are unable to begin sailing in mid-June, then our losses will continue to mount by around £4500 each month. We have tightened our belts and made as many savings as possible, reducing our costs by around a quarter, but your support is still vital.
This is a difficult time for everyone, but if you can, please consider supporting us and securing the continued future of our work.

“Great opportunity and really changed lives of those who were with us. We all had great fun and grew together.”
Thank you very much, you allowed me an opportunity to meet new people and take time away from the rush of everyday life. I really enjoyed my trip and couldn’t have done it without your help.
“The onboard crew were very helpful in discussion, responsibilities and instruction and made me feel safe, thank you very much.”
“It’s a worthwhile activity. The staff encourage you and give you responsibilities. The more you put in the more you get.”
