Take a look at some of the comments from people who have sailed with us.
When I was first diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) life seemed extremely bleak and I spent much of my time in solitude unable to contemplate a future at all. Since my engagement with Turn to Starboard, life has taken on a new meaning and purpose. I believe that Shaun Pascoe has given me back my life, handed me a future and returned a sense of self worth. I shall remain eternally grateful.”
When I came to Turn to Starboard I felt scared and nervous. I was apprehensive because despite the feeling that I wanted to do this I didn’t know what I was capable of and I didn’t want to feel failure again. The week on the yacht was amazing. For the first time since 2006 I haven’t had to apologise for not being able to keep up or take part … I felt part of a team … I felt excited, exhilarated. I felt like I used to feel … ”
Being put on the yacht with guys who have been on the same tour was pretty cool. Went from war stories by day two to thrashing things out. Waking up in the morning in a bay in Cornwall is pretty amazing too, a real moment if you know what I mean, thanks Turn to Starboard.”
The evenings on the yacht were a bit of an eye opener. Not only did we have a laugh there were some serious chats putting the world to rights and to get a course in as well is great. I’m definitely going to carry on sailing.”
