TALL SHIPS - A journey of discovery

Get the wind in your sails and head for the open seas

If you're considering a winter sun adventure and are looking for an experience unlike any other, have you thought about taking a Tall Ship voyage? You have the opportunity to set sail on an epic journey on board one of our 72ft Challenger Yachts and visit stunning volcanic islands in The Canaries or beautiful beaches and ports of the Caribbean.

Our voyages provide a perfect place to meet friends, to see the most amazing scenery and sunsets as well as learning how to sail. Everyone gets involved: you'll learn how to set the sails, handle the ropes, take the helm and all the other varied tasks that are required to sail. Once on board you'll join either the Starboard or Port Watch, and will undertake the crewing of the vessel under the expert guidance of a Watch Leader.

Primarily a charity, the Tall Ships Youth Trust is dedicated to the personal development of young people aged 12 to 25. Our fleet includes our Tall Ship Stavros S Niarchos, a magnificent 200ft Brig, four 72ft Challenger Yachts and the 62ft Tall Ships Catamaran. However, people of all ages and from all walks of life are encouraged to be adventurous and take on a new challenge on board one of our Tall Ships. So fulfil your sailing fantasies and join us on a truly life changing experience.
