Free offer to servicemen and women who left the Army Navy or Air Force through injury.

Turn to Starboard is a charity that provides sail training up to the level of RYA Yachtmaster to wounded servicemen. We are supported by Help for Heroes, RAFA, Y.CO super yachts and many more. No matter what their previous experience we provide them with a complete package.

Through what we call the Zero to Hero programme participants can complete their RYA Yachtmaster qualification. This can be completed at their leisure, accommodation is on board the sailing vessels and full welfare assistance is provided. Most of the support staff here are WIS veterans themselves, so understand the challenges. If you have the ability to extend the help that you have already given them please let them know of the free offer.

Please visit  to find out more.

If you are interested in applying please contact Roy Newport  01326 314262, or email
