All of the team here are pleased to announce the recent launch of two maritime-related websites, for the Swan Trust www.swantrust.com and for Sail Training Shetland www.sailtrainingshetland.com.
The Swan Trust had an existing website, but it was beginning to look dated and most of the content was out of date. So, we designed and developed a totally new site which offers a wealth of content and which allows people to make booking enquiries or register their interest in becoming a volunteer. We recommend you watch the embedded YouTube video to get a taste of what you can experience when aboard.
We wish the Swan Trust every success with their new site, and with all their other interesting plans for the future.
Also recently launchedis the new Sail Training Shetland website. You can visit their site at: www.sailtrainingshetland.com.
Sail Training Shetland is a registered Scottish Charity and is a collaboration between The Swan Trust, Lerwick Port Authority and Tall Ship Races Lerwick 2011 Ltd. This new initiative follows the successful placement of young trainee sailors (aged 15 - 25) on board Tall Shipsin the years, 2006, 2008 and 2009.
The main purpose of the website is to attract young people to come and try Sail Training, and to make young people aware that their are many more opportunities to take part in Tall Ships (and similar) events than they may have first thought.
The website includes all the information that anyone who is interested in joining the Sail Training this summer would need. There are videos and pictures so that you can see what previous years were like. There's plenty to look at and plenty to learn!
It was great working on a small, highly focussed project like this. We wish Sail Training Shetland all of the best of luck with their website and hope that they encourage many young sailors that take part have an excellent time.
