1. Salvage the original Rhoda Mary.

2. Return her to Cornwall.

3. Restore her to her original form.


Create a pre-apprenticeship Training Course for 16-19 year olds, based on the Rhoda Mary, and enhance marine skills and knowledge to improve the employment prospects of Cornish young people in this important sector of the local economy.

Also participate in local, national and international events such as tall ships races while flying the flag of St Piran.
