The Wind Project aims to encourage wider social participation and engagement in Sailing with the objective of building a stronger, more socially cohesive, local community, where these opportunities are available to all. The Project also aims to have a positive impact on the local and wider economy by broadening people’s horizons to the potential employment opportunities in the marine industry. By fostering a love of Sailing and the water, young people who participate in the Project’s activities will gain a greater awareness of the varied range of opportunities in the marine sector.
