Tall Ships Adventures in support of the Tall Ships Youth Trust has places available for 16-25 year olds on board its magnificent Tall Ship Stavros S Niarchos for the Tall Ships Races 2013.
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone aged 16-25 to get involved with the world famous annual Tall Ships Races 2013. The main aim of the event is to provide an opportunity for young people to develop their personal skills in a challenging and memorable sail training environment. They will become part of a team where good communication is vital and overcoming challenges will build their self esteem.
Young people can join one the Trust’s vessels to become part of the voyage crew who will race against a large fleet of ships across Northern Europe and no previous sailing experience is necessary. From the very first day they will join the start line as race crew and help to get the vessels to their destination as quickly as possible.
Join in with the races with a Cruise in Company from Helsinki, Finland to Riga, Latvia (from £699) which is then followed by a Tall ships Race from Riga, Latvia to Szczecin, Poland (from £699). The ships will then join a Parade of Sail from Szczecin, Poland to Newcastle, UK (from £899) where the final festivities will take place with plenty of entertainment ashore.

‘’The Tall Ships Races was the best experience of my life! It was exciting to be at sea and race other tall ships, I have made some amazing new friends, some that I know will be by my side forever. ‘’
The Tall Ships Youth Trust is offering bursaries* on these voyages to enable more young people to get on board.
