BUDDING sailors learned about how they could benefit from a life-changing adventure.
Round the world Challenger yachts sailed into Hartlepool marina at the weekend to show what they had to offer.
The 72-feet yachts are run and operated by the Tall Ships Youth Trust charity.
Visitors got to look around their decks on Saturday and Sunday and ask the volunteer crew questions.
The Tall Ships Youth Trust was in town as part of the National Citizen Service 2012.
The Government scheme helps young people from all backgrounds to work together and take on new challenges.
