TURN TO STARBOARD
While many of our Armed Forces veterans manage the transition back to civilian life seamlessly, some can find it highly challenging. After serving for their country, many veterans return home with physical or mental health injuries. This can mean a difficult process to find a ‘normal’ job and being able to pay for life’s essentials.
Turn to Starboard uses sail training to support Armed Forces personnel affected by military operations to help start new careers in the marine industry. Launched in 2014, the Falmouth-based charity has provided more than 1,900 sailing opportunities to injured veterans and their families so far with many going on to gain valuable Royal Yachting Association (RYA) sailing qualifications.
