Santa Maria Manuela – European Coast & Tall Ships Events

Santa Maria Manuela has ventured as far North as Norway’s Lofoten Islands and Tromso in the Arctic Circle, but in she is not going that far.this year. 

You may spot her distinctive 4 masted schooner rig at tall ship races but she has been pre booked for the main International Tall Ships Races for youth crews. 

There are adult crew places on several voyages that start or finish at a major gathering of tall ships. They make great gifts or presents (to your self or a friend!) as you often see the last day celebrations of take part in a parade of sail, plus enjoy a few days coastal sailing. This contrast between being centre of attention in a harbour and seeking out the open sea or a quiet anchorage on a proper journey of a few hundred miles makes for an interesting holiday.
