Challenge Wales, Wales’ Tall Ship has been awarded the UK Sail Training Vessel of the Year by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and the Association of Sail Training Organisations (ASTO) at an industry event in Southampton.

The award is given to a vessel which has had an exceptional year and has fulfilled both the sail training aspirations of ASTO plus the seamanship and safety requirements for the MCA. The award looks at good management, safety, high quality sail training, volunteer management, innovations in the types of young people groups jumping aboard, maintenance management and how results are measured.
