About Sail Training and ASTO
Sail Training with an ASTO member is not about learning to sail. Instead, it is the experience of living and working together on board a large residential sailing vessel, taking responsibility for the running of the boat and gaining a sense of pride and achievement. Sail Training is proven to increase self-confidence, resilience and life skills.

ASTO (Association of Sail Training Organisations) is the umbrella body for Sail Training in the UK. We support over 30 separate charities that use Sail Training adventures as personal development for young people and disabled people. ASTO supports our members with grants and events. The exciting new social media role will help promote Sail Training around the UK to ensure far more people are aware of, and take up, the fantastic opportunities available.
