Sailing Tectona provides truly life changing experiences for those recovering from substance misuse, and mental health issues as well as the young and the socially disadvantaged.

Our vision is to inspire positive changes in people’s lives to enable them to shape their future. 

We do this using two traditional sailing vessels; Tectona (1928) and Olga (1909). Our voyages take people away from the everyday, and into a new world with positive challenges and a supportive environment. 

Our voyages operate at sea beyond the horizon; an incredibly unique medium which organically grows individual’s self-efficacy - many participants find within themselves remarkable capabilities which they didn’t know they had. Our customer experience is something we are incredibly proud of.

We also have strong community links and work hard with wonderful volunteers to skilfully maintain our two vessels. 

Sailing Tectona is a medium size charitable organisation based in Plymouth, comprising a registered Charity and a Community Interest Company (CIC). We are proud to continue the work and twelve year legacy left by Dr Roger Crabtree. 


Our new board

We have some exciting opportunities for people to join our friendly Board of Trustees and get involved with us on the next part of our journey.

We are looking for people to help re-energise Sailing Tectona, and formulate a strong and healthy recovery from the struggles of 2020/21. Do you have something to offer? Might you have current, working knowledge in some of these areas? 

 The board will require expertise in:

  • Marketing / PR / Sales

  • Finance management / Fundraising

  • General management

  • Safety

Volunteering as a trustee allows you to help in a very focused, professional and time-limited way. 

This is a chance to be involved in a project where your knowledge, commitment and enthusiasm will be truly valued and appreciated.  You will be part of a passionate and dedicated team working towards maintaining our valued customer experience. You will have the opportunity to play a key role in an organisation which makes a real difference to people’s lives.
