Mental Health Sailing Trips

Mind in Croydon ran a successful sailing project in partnership with the Rona Sailing Project for several years but funding for this stopped a few years ago. Mind in Croydon are lucky in having a keen sailor amongst their staff who has kept the project going on a voluntary basis so although no longer a Mind in Croydon project is still run with the same guidelines.

To date we have had around 27 trips mainly with Croydon service users but a few from other local Mind’s in London and are looking to support Rona Sailing Project to have three voyages this year.

We are able to provide minibus transport from Croydon or meet people at the marina near Southampton. Everyone has a full assessment on referral and are fully briefed on what the trips entail (living on top of each other and all aspects of sailing a 74ft yacht etc) and the benefits (it’s a brilliant experience). The crew will always include someone with experience of supporting mental health and anyone interested is welcome to contact us for more information.

Rona Sailing Project is a fully accredited Sail Training organisation.
