VICTA is looking for adventurous young adults willing to try out a whole host of water sports, including windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking. With lessons from experienced and trained instructors at the water sports school, you will get a taste for a new sport that VICTA will also be able to support you in continuing after the trip.

A VICTA international trip would not be complete without trying some of the local food and exploring the local markets and cultural hotspots.

As ever, VICTA trips are no holiday; you will have an action-packed week of fun and exploration, not only trying new sports and new foods but meeting new people too. If you want to lounge and sunbathe for a week, this is not the trip for you!

Why apply?

  • Try a range of different water sports
  • Great opportunity to meet other visually impaired young adults
  • Grow in confidence through semi-independent travel
  • Increase your mobility and independence skills
  • To accelerate new friendships
  • To enhance own confidence and trust with other individuals
  • Gain all of this while having a fun trip in a supportive, encouraging environment

Who can apply?

You must be:

  • Registered or registrable blind or partially sighted
  • At least 18 years old on 1 June 2020
  • Aged 29 or under on 7 June 2020
  • Willing and physically able to take part in water sports
  • Able to maintain your own personal hygiene
