Based at Falmouth Marina in Cornwall, we are a group of Yachtmasters and volunteers – civilian, ex-service and serving who help military veterans get on the right track.

We support serving and retired Armed Forces personnel, and their families, who have been affected by military operations. Our support does not distinguish between Reservists and Regulars.

We offer:

  • RYA courses – the opportunity for individuals affected by operational tours to undertake RYA Day Skipper and Competent Crew courses.
  • Family sailing – we enable Service families who have been affected by operations to spend some time together on a skippered yacht off the beautiful Cornish coast.
  • Tall ship sailing – for those with an adventurous streak to join us on board the Spirit of Falmouth, a 91ft gaff-rigged traditional Pilot Schooner, for day sails or longer trips.
  • Zero to Hero programme – a training programme with flexible, expert tuition culminating in a RYA Yachtmaster and commercially endorsed Cruising Instructor qualification. The training modules take 16 weeks to complete, but T2S participants can schedule the training and mileage building over a period to suit them. Typically our participants would complete the course within one year.
  • Volunteer opportunities – work with a group of like-minded people on tasks such as marine engineering, carpentry, painting, fundraising, corporate events, photography, film, graphic design, social media, copywriting, PR, marketing or administration.
