We use sailing to help Armed Forces personnel and their families make the right turn. When two boats are
heading straight towards each other, they avoid collision
by following a simple rule of sailing – turn to
starboard (turn to the right).
Based at Falmouth Marina in
Cornwall, we are a group of Yachtmasters and volunteers – civilian, ex-service
and serving who help military veterans get on the right track.
We use Royal Yachting Association
(RYA) sailing courses to support Armed Forces personnel who have been affected
by military operations. We also provide sailing trips to enable Service families who
have been affected by operations to spend some time together on a skippered
Service personnel who have
experienced hostile conditions on deployed operations often have difficulty
readjusting to normal life. It can sometimes be difficult to share these
highly stressful experiences and emotions with friends and family. The
instinct can often be to try and protect families and loved ones by
not discussing how we feel.
At Turn to Starboard we
regularly witness that it is easier to share experiences with others
who have served in the Forces. By grouping these individuals together, we allow
them to begin their journey of readjustment. We aim to help people leaving
the Armed Forces gain qualifications that will help them find new careers in
the marine industry.
The comradeship through shared
experience can prove invaluable… but we are not just about that.
By providing internationally recognised courses through the Royal Yachting
Association, we support our beneficiaries to develop new careers
while setting them on a more positive path for their future.
