Around 100 vessels and almost 4,000 young people will be part of 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 will be taking on one of her biggest adventures yet as she visits no fewer than 8 countries as part of her summer. Her Tall Ships adventures will take her to Halmstad (Sweden), Kotka (Finland), Turku (Finland), Klaipeda (Lithuania), Szczecin (Poland).
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!
If you are 18 – 75, then you can join us on our delivery leg from Aberdeen to Halmstad for the start of the Tall Ships Races, giving you the onboard Tall Ships event experience that you would usually not be able to experience.
Remember, no sailing experience is required to take part in any of our voyages below.
