ATYLA's Educational Programme is at the heart of our project. It is our mission as an organisation, and what elevates ATYLA from a hand built classic wooden vessel, to an International Training Ship.
Traditionally, ships dedicated to training sailors have used the term “Sail Training” to describe what they do. However, sailing is not the focus of our programme, it’s just the fun and exciting tool we use to teach our Trainees important life skills that are integral to their success both at sea and on land.
ATYLA’s Personal Development Programme can be broken down into 5 life skills, each of which is key to living a happy and productive life.
Of course, there is also a great deal of sailing related knowledge in our Sail Training Programme to be acquired during your trip if you're interested. The professional crew have many years of experience and will teach you all you will need to know in order to sail the ship. They are always on hand and happy to explain in more detail about any topic.
Don't be shy to ask!
