A SAILING challenge aims to give 12 young people the voyage of a lifetime.
Calls have gone out for sailing clubs in Sunderland to raise money to sponsor a youngster from their area on an exciting sailing programme aboard the iconic yacht, James Cook.
The programme will be run by Ocean Youth Trust North East, the only sail training charity in the North East of England.
There are 12 places available on board for young people from the region to experience the challenges of sailing first-hand on a six-day voyage from Ipswich to Hartlepool.
The James Cook will be berthed in Ipswich on April 17 prior to the trip.
