Day Sails on Tall Ships

Day Sails on classic square riggers like Lord Nelson and Tenacious are very popular so if you cannot find a day sail date or port near you with availability we suggest you think about sailing on one of our medium sized sailing ships or even a classic boat for the day. You will still find towering masts and numerous sails to set. There are many benefits to sailing on 70-100ft sailing ships like Irene, Grayhound, Pilgrim, Leader and Provident. The most obvious is that there are less people - typically 8-12 guest crew for day sails.
