A CHARITY is offering funding for young people to take part in a voyage at sea.

The five-night voyage, run by Tall Ships Adventures, gives young people aged between 16 and 25 the chance to learn about sailing on board a 72ft Challenger yacht.

The Tall Ships Youth Trust is offering a bursary to bring the cost of the trip down to £99.
