Children’s Sailing Trust is the charity that works to open up watersports opportunities for young people in Cornwall. Our new accessible venture at Trevassack Lake will, alongside sessions on the Helford River, increase our ability to get more local children out sailing, including those with physical disabilities or special educational needs.
