The boat TS Britta is a key aspect of the TS Britta Community Sail Training Organisation.
Currently docked at Porth Penrhyn in Bangor, TS Britta is undergoing major refit work for the next 10-12 months.
All funds that are received will go into the refit of the boat and the development of the organization.
A lot of time and energy has already been invested in the acquisition of the boat, the refit, and the development of this community-focused sail training organization. We’re incredibly grateful for your donations and support.
The shipwright work and resealing / caulking of the deck are the current major works being carried out on board. Other projects include work on the masts and reinstatement of the bunks in the saloon.
In return for your support, TS Britta Sail Training is offering free berths for sail training and charter once operational.
Another way to support the project is through volunteering. There are opportunities to learn all about the workings of the boat and enjoy later maybe some finishing touches like paint and varnish in southern warmer waters.
The shipwright work of frames, clamps, and resealing/caulking the deck are the major works being carried out onboard in Penrhyn Dock. Much money already spent on the acquisition and current work already being carried out.
New Frames being fitted on the Starboard side of the hull
Our Sail Training programs are designed to facilitate character building and essential boat crew and skippering skills. Our programs are available to all, regardless of age, background, or ability.
Alongside our operation as a community Sail Training vessel, we have intentions to offer other exciting programs which include Marine Watch and Exploration, Eco-Cargo, Mediterranean passage to Greek islands and Eastern Med ports, Tall Ship festivals, and Music festivals. Bespoke charters will also be available.
All members of the team are currently volunteering their time and energy to develop the organization. They bring a diverse range of experience as sailors - skippers/crew - and instructors of various outward-bound activities.
Our Mission Statement: ‘Transforming Lives at Sea’.
“Britta sails beautifully having sailed her around Lands End up the Irish Sea. Her full rig is something to behold.” - Roger Toye, TS Britta Sail Training
