Sail training voyages offer an excellent opportunity for personal development or just a great adventure holiday!  Whether you are an experienced sailor or a complete novice joining the crew of a tall ship will create an inspiring challenge and a fantastic adventure.

Tall Ship sail training trips are available for young people (15 to 25 years) and adults (over 25 years).  You will be expected to participate in all elements of life on board the ship from cooking and cleaning to sail handling, steering and navigation.  No experience is necessary and full training will be given by the ship's professional crew.  You can book individually or as a group - maybe you are organising a holiday for a school group or social club.  Many of the sail training ships offer Tall Ship Voyages during the year and some are affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) so you can use your tall ship experience to take the RYA Competent Crew certificate and other qualifications.

Tall Ships' Races
The annual Tall Ships Races are organised by Sail Training International and offer a superb opportunity for young people to interact with crew members of other nationalities.  In 2009 there are two Tall Ships' Races taking place - the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge and the Tall Ships' Batic Race.  Details of places available on these trips are listed in Tall Ship Voyage List. As with all Tall Ship Races at least 50% of the crews must be aged 15 to 25 years.
