“Sea of Youth” takes place between June and September. Every five days a group of eight young people circumnavigate Mallorca and Menorca experiencing the advantages of Sail Training, among which are building self esteem and self confidence, learning to work as a team, creating a feeling of success and learning about the value of cooperation. In addition they carry out other tasks such as cleaning beaches and the seabed and identifying different fish species to support scientific investigation. These tasks encourage environmental awareness and highlight the importance of the conservation of the Balearic Islands. In total more than 200 young people take part every year.
