Tall Ship Racing – Participate as tall ship crew

“There is something about joining the Tall Ships Fleet that defies cynicism. Sailing these great vessels is not just a sport, and not just sentimentality. It fuses the old skills of laborious teamwork and communal courage with a new pattern of adventure and internationalism. Even the most timid and unfit deck workers find themselves rising to the task, inspired by the natural beauty of the sea and the human beauty of the great ships, and the people who sail them.” Libby Purves

International Tall Ships Races are organised in different locations each year. Typically there will be one, or occasionally two, tall ships race events held in Europe each summer.  

Most legs will have opportunities for tall ship crew of all ages to take part. Classic Sailing has a number of tall ships and smaller sailing ships that offer individual berths on races each year. In addition to able bodied berths, Lord Nelson and Tenacious are designed to take disabled crew and one or both ships take part in tall ships races every year. 

Full training will be given so a complete newcomer to sailing can take part. These voyages are fairly ‘full on’ sailing so you need to be confident about your fitness and stamina. They also fill up fast so ring us soon.
