Tall Ship

Stavros S Niarchos Stavros S Niarchos is a 200ft Brig (a ship with two square-rigged masts) designed to sail anywhere in the world. Stavros carries a traditional eighteenth century style rig on a modern hull, making her both great fun to sail and very comfortable below decks. Stavros has a modern feel below decks with plenty of showers, air conditioning and heating and a modern fitted galley. There is a large Mess (area to eat and socialise) and plenty of space outside. For sleeping there are six cabins with eight bunks in each – you will be allocated your own bunk and storage locker. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has appointed Stavros as an auxiliary coastguard vessel afloat in recognition of her safety features, equipment carried and level of training the crew receive.


Challenger Fleet The four Challengers are 72ft Yachts that were built in 2000 and have all raced around the world. They’re perfect for sail training as they provide an exciting but extremely safe environment for everyone on board. The yachts are comfortable down below – airy saloon (seating area), well equipped galley and two heads (toilets) with showers. The sleeping area is open plan with snug pipe cots (bunks) and your own storage area. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) gave the yachts the highest rating; they have the safety features, equipment and capability to be sailed anywhere in the world.


Tall Ships Cat Tall Ships Cat is a 62ft catamaran which was generously donated to the Tall Ships Youth Trust. She is extremely well maintained and equipped and provides an excellent and stable platform for sail training. Tall Ships Cat enables us to extend our work with young people, particularly disabled youngsters and those with special needs. She will be used throughout the year to provide sail training for young people aged 12 to 25.

The Tenacity of Bolton will be departing Portsmouth and heading North during spring. In April she will sail onwards to the wonderful cruising grounds of Scotland for the majority of the summer.
