The project has secured 10 places for 15 to 21-year-olds to form the crew of the James Cook sail training ship, operated by the Ocean Youth Trust. This voyage will form part of the 2018 Tall Ships Race from Sunderland to Denmark, and the crew will take part in all the Tall Ships’ events, from July 13 to July 20. Potential crew members who are currently aged 13 or over can apply.

For those who prefer dry land, the project is looking to repeat its previously successful expeditions to Morocco, the next one being in July 2017. This will be a two-week trip, with around half of that time spent trekking and camping in the Western Atlas mountains. Further afield, thought is being given to a trip to Nepal in 2019.

The project will be also be offering camping, trekking and canoeing, with costs from as little as £5. For more information email john.bell@berwickyouthproject.co.uk
