Become a Sailor! - 5 days

Spending 5 days on board will give you a real experience of life on board a Tall Ship! In our 5 day program you will learn everything you need to achieve our Grade 1 Lead Hand qualification (see below for details). You will have a wide range of experiences and spend nights at sea and in port. In addition to sailing other fun activities include shore leave, a scavenger hunt and sea shanties with your fellow crew. You will also have time to relax, read a book and enjoy being on the water.

Every course is different and we will be happy to discuss details and options to make the experience perfect for your group.
