Sail a Tall Ship – Yes you can be Tall Ship Crew

Can I really sail a tall ship as crew?

Yes you can.

Classic Sailing specialise in tall ship sailing for adults and young people. Whether you satisfy your ‘romance of the sea’ cravings with a tall ship day sail, escape for some winter sun on a beautiful schooner, or want to cross an ocean, we have the tall ship holiday for you.

It’s an active and thrilling challenge and there is something about it that turns ordinary people into super heroes. We have seen a tiny ex ballet dancer in her 70’s climb aloft to stow sails. The heady responsibility of steering a mighty square rigger has been seized by many who only ‘steer a desk’ in their day job. Even if you don’t fancy climbing the rigging, most guest crew can’t resist a trip out on the bowsprit netting to take a ‘selfie’ photo of your tall ship in its full glory.
