    Ministry overview

    In the landscape of the stunning Norfolk Broads and on a fleet including classic wooden sailing yachts, we give young people the chance to learn to sail and experience something of God.

    For over 70 years we have provided the adventure of becoming immersed in living, eating and sleeping on boats, learning to sail during the day. Around this, we seek to develop a greater understanding of Christianity, sharing together through teaching, worship and time together.
