Over 100 vessels and almost 7,000 young people took part in the Tall Ships Races 2017 – and if you are aged 16 – 25 years then you can be too! Remember, a variety of bursaries are available to help you jump onboard so if you want to join us on a voyage, financial support is there to help make this possible!  Check our out Bursaries page for more details!

In 2017, Challenge Wales had one of her biggest adventures yet as she visits no fewer than 14 countries, welcomed 10 different nationalities onboard, experienced weather conditions from 0 knots to 45 knots, attended events that drew in over 2.5 million spectators in the largest festival in Europe and sailed over 4,000 miles as part of her summer. 

Tall Ships races and events are about adventure, heritage, social responsibility and scale – set against a stunning backdrop of vessels, beautiful ports and a fever of festival excitement!

Remember, no sailing experience is required to take part in any of our voyages below.

We are still planning for 2018 but it is likely we will take part in the Tall Ships Races 2018 (which starts in Sunderland in the UK) or the Tall Ships Regatta (which takes in Dublin, Liverpool and France). If you are interested in Tall Ships Racing then get in touch so when our programme is confirmed you will be the first to know!
