Tall Ship Day Sails and Tasters

Many people dream of sailing a square rigger. They might have held the wheel of a tall ship in port at a Tall Ship Festival and wondered what the 'wheels kick' really feels like at sea. We can help turn that ambition into reality, and you can start with a day sail or maybe a 2-3 day taster voyage.  If you are thinking of tackling a long ocean voyage then maybe a taster first will give you more confidence.

Classic Sailing have gift vouchers if you want to treat a friend or relative to a tall ship experience, and we often take bookings for a grandmother and grand daughter or a father and son, or other family groups who want a unique tall ship day out or weekend away.

If you are excited but not sure its for you, then ring us and we can coax you into it. Square riggers actually evolved to sail with small crews, so it is not as hard as you think. You just work in small teams to set one sail at a time, generally starting with the lowest and working upwards. All Classic Sailing tall ships are sailed with young people as well as adults, so men and women of all sizes and strengths can contribute to the hands on sailing.
