Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company and the Atlantic Youth Trust came together with 5 candidates (18-24 yrs) who took part in a 5 day voyage onboard this 70ft sailing schooner – Dublin to Carlingford Lough from 18th – 22nd May 2015.
The very first crew on an Atlantic Youth Trust organised voyage. 50% from Northern Ireland and 50% from the Republic of Ireland.
Core funding came from the Department of Foreign Affairs Reconciliation Fund, local partners are Loughs Agency – Foyle and Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company. Special thanks also to the Royal Irish Yacht Club for the berth and Sail Training Ireland for Youth Development and the Spirit of Oysterhaven Trust.
The final piece of the puzzle comes from PeacePlayers International – Northern Ireland who have provided a youth worker to help deliver the programme.
