Ahoy there, thanks for clicking by!

 What have you been doing on this blue-skied Monday afternoon? Some of the Touch Trust Team had the pleasure of boarding a fully working ship in Cardiff Baycourtesy of new connections with The Jubilee Sailing Trust.

 The aim and ethos of the trust is “to offer the opportunity and challenge of tall ship sailing to disabled people” as well as to “Challenge perceptions and preconceptions of disability amongst the able-bodied”. The trust has a branch in Cardiff. General information about what is offered can be found here: http://www.jst.org.uk/

 We had a great tour from those on board, namely Joy, who has a wonderful time on many voyages and showed us, with great fondness, the delightful characteristics of Lord Nelson as it rested peacefully for a short while in the Bay before heading to Southhampton

 Dilys was very enthused by the experience – we know from her passion for sky diving that her sense of adventure is strong.  Emma was also very keen and could almost feel the sense of liberation that it would bring to be out at sea, doing as sailors do! This could be one of the things to note on the “opportunity of a life-time” list. A nostalgic “Peter Pan” memory for all of you Disney fans out there!

“So come with me, where dreams are born and time is never planned. Just think of happy things and your heart with fly on wings forever in never never land”

That’s what a day at Touch Trust can do for the imagination…. Nice, eh?

 Have a look at the picture, to see Emma at Ship’s Wheel!
