Central Leader - - News -

The Spirit of Ad­ven­ture Trust has been pre­sented with a pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional award.

The trust, which op­er­ates the Spirit of New Zealand, was named Sail Train­ing Or­gan­i­sa­tion of the Year at an awards din­ner in Nova Sco­tia last week.

The award is given to the sail train­ing ves­sel that has demon­strated ex­cel­lence in in­no­va­tion and best prac­tice in youth de­vel­op­ment at sea for young peo­ple.

Trust chair­man Stephen B Fisher says the award is a huge hon­our.

“The Sail Train­ing Or­gan­i­sa­tion of the Year Award is a re­flec­tion of the pro­fes­sion­al­ism, and ded­i­ca­tion of our staff, vol­un­teers, sup­port­ers and board who have for the past 35 years de­liv­ered a pro­gramme with quan­ti­fied pos­i­tive out­comes to over 75,000 young New Zealan­ders.
