The main objectives for which the Liffey Youth Sailing Ireland is established to operate on a not-for-profit basis are:
• Using the maritime and shore support services to promote such and any educational objects or purposes tending to advance the education, maritime experience and physical and mental development of children, young and adult persons by providing opportunities for training in and experience of seamanship navigation and boat-handling for such persons so they build confidence both physically and mentally as individuals and members of society;
• To provide support and fund the above objectives together with promoting the Island of Ireland, maritime development and the European Ideal in a local and global context;
• To organize a club house on shore for training and exercise purposes; this club house will provide a further support mechanism to young people and adults who participate in the activities. This could range from participation in racing teams to joining in partnership with other clubs, associations and like-minded people;
• To find a means by which the LYSI will be self-renewing and to form subsidiary operations in partnership, which could be run on a commercial basis but from which any profits should revert to the LYSI.
Most of all, that the people who contribute, who participate and who subscribe to the common objectives should have fun and get education in skills of seamanship which would improve the chances of future education and employment in maritime industry.
