Welcome to the Egremont Trust
The Egremont Trust (Salcombe) is a registered charity with the aim of maintaining the ship MV Egremont as a facility for the advancement of the education and development of young people, as well as raising funds to utilise the facility for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. The ship Egremont is a unique platform for residential and non-residential sail training and other ancillary on-water activities for people from all backgrounds.
Egremont spent the first part of her working life crossing the river Mersey between Liverpool and Birkenhead. In 1976 she arrived in Salcombe to start a new life as the base for the Island Cruising Club. In 2012 she was transferred from the Island Cruising Club to the Egremont Trust (Salcombe) to allow a dedicated team to focus on her upkeep.
Egremont continues to act as the base for The Island Cruising Club which meets throughout the year during the weekends.
