The young people involved are all going through difficult experiences at the current time, either living in a hostile environment or having been made homeless after coming out as LGBT.
Their situation, the lack of family support, difficulties and prejudice they have encountered and continue to encounter can result in a loss of confidence, low self esteem, and limited aspirations. Their opportunities to try new experiences, work with others and make new connections may be severely limited by their home circumstances or financial position and few have the experience of positive LGBT role models, within a home, learning or workplace setting. Out Sailing aims to provide a very positive experience for the young people, where they can meet new people, learn something new and develop new skills as part of a team in a safe and supportive environment.
In 2017, Out Sailing is running two separate weekends in Newcastle and Cowes, offering more LGBT young people an opportunity to take part.
