Many people people have had big career changes as a result of tall ship sailing. As an example a young woman sailed with Debbie and Adam on a tall ship and our small pilot cutter Eve of St Mawes. At the time she was completing a Music Degree at Edinburgh University. Now she is a Master Mariner and Ice Master of oil or chemical tankers, you don’t find higher qualifications than that in the Merchant Navy.
