Tall Ships Challenge 2017

Tall Ships Challenge 2017

Harrow School’s collaboration with the Tall Ships Youth Trust brought together 13 Harrovians and a group of local young offenders for a unique experience of life on board three 21m Challenger yachts. Harrow boys raised funds throughout the year to enable this group to go on a challenging trip around the Channel Islands. Aimed at giving young people a break from their daily routines and an opportunity to develop crucial skills needed in the workplace, the charity is dedicated to the personal development of young people through the crewing of ocean-going sail training vessels.

Setting off from Portsmouth Harbour the round trip encompassed the Isle of Wight, the Islands of Alderney, Guernsey and Jersey.
