That concludes the YLDP week takeover!!!! We’ve had such a great time working together to show you our truly amazing and life changing journey!!!! To be able to document our experience and to tell people about it really fills us with pride and joy and we would also like to thank James who not only was our photographer but became a great member of crew onboard but also a great friend too!! We couldn’t be anymore grateful and appreciative for all the time and effort from all our OYT staff, volunteers and donators that helped to make our journey possible!!! The valuable skills, lessons and knowledge we gained from our time has really benefited us young leaders and has allowed us to progress in many other things both in sailing and out! All of us young leaders have grown up through the trust, working our way up and becoming volunteers as bosuns over many years and now moving onto watch-leaders; we have all experienced just how much of a positive and inspiring impact our time with OYT has had on each of us and we feel very strongly that the trust truly is life changing and we are proud to be the products of it all!! Especially in these unprecedented times it has made us all realise just how important it is that we keep volunteering and donating whether it be money or time so that we are able to give young people like us that chance to really benefit and make a change! We’ve all really missed sailing this year especially as some of us would be volunteering on the boats now, so we want to use this platform to show just how important it is that we are able to still sail and volunteer next year and that young adults are able to have the same experience as what we have all had! So again thank you to everyone, those that have helped with our trip and our journey, to our SQA Leaders, our sea staff Steve, Graeme, Josie, Molly, Yasmin and Michi, James, Dave, Hazel and everyone in the office!!! But also to all volunteers, staff and donators involved in the trust to whom our journey from when going as a young adult wouldn’t be possible and I’m sure we speak for every young person who has been on a voyage and benefited from their own personal journeys! #YLDP19takeover
