A sailing barge offering trips for school children is awarding bursaries to some organisations and schools.

The Thalatta offers five day cruises from Maldon or Ipswich, and children sleep in hammocks and take turns to crew the boat, while learning about estuaries and the sea.

The East Coast Sail Trust can now offer a £1000 bursary, reducing the cost of the trip from £3600 to £2600 for a group of ten.

Applications should be submitted by email or post to Christopher McArthur, Director of the Trust, at chris@cimcarthur.co.uk or Mr C I McArthur, Berry Farm, Hoo Road, Charsfield, Suffolk, IP13 7QH by March 25.
