The Silvery Light Sailing Project  promotes  Community and Youth Sailing,  Maritime Heritage  and Tall Ship  Volunteering 

Our mission is to provide an opportunity for all  to experience getting afloat  through  youth and community sailing  onboard the Volharding,

a 90 ft Dutch Sailing Barge   


  The Convirus-19  restrictions continue!


The sailing season progresses without sign of change or lifting of restrictions sufficient to allow us to recommence our intended sailing programme     In line with Government recommendations The Board of Trustees have taken the decision to cancel the sailing programme for the remainder of 2020 

 The  2021 Sail Training and Activities Programme will be published shortly.   

Thank you for your support.  We hope it will not be too long until we can welcome you back onboard.
