Company Description

Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust (HRCST) is a charity based near Falmouth in Cornwall with a proud track record over 20 years of teaching children and young people to develop new skills and confidence through learning to sail and other water based activities. Over 600 children participate each year, the majority at no charge and who otherwise would not have this opportunity because of circumstances, despite living close to the sea.

The charity is now at an exciting stage of its development looking to expand and build its influence for the next generation. It has recently acquired the beautiful Trevassack Lake site on the Lizard peninsula. Targeting many more youngsters including those with physical, behavioural and educational disabilities, this hugely rewarding activity includes building a state of the art Learning Centre and in due course several residential lodges for accompanying families.
