Charity number


Challenge Wales is an award-winning charity set up to support and enable young people aged 12 - 25 years old to develop essential life skills including: team development, responsibility, communication, respect for others, planning, leadership, self-esteem and interdependence. This is achieved through sail training and navigation using a 72-ft round-the-world yacht called Challenge Wales | Wales' Tall Ship and Adventure Wales. By giving young people these skills it can greatly improve their employment prospects and in some cases can truly turn their lives around.

The charity is run mainly by volunteers with enthusiasm and passion and uses Cardiff Bay as its home port with voyages taking young people further afield.

Young people who undertake sail training with us include those in school or an educational environment, those who are out of school and maybe unemployed, as well as those who are carers, young people effected by trauma, those with disabilities (e.g. visually impaired) and those in clubs and young people's organisations.
