Almost 100 vessels and thousands of young people took part in the Tall Ships Races 2019 in which Challenge Wales brought home no fewer than four trophies. In 2019 Challenge Wales took Line Honours in each of the Tall Ships Races as well as fastest boat overall plus second in Class C&D in Race 2. It was an amazing result and a great effort from all the young people onboard.
The 2020 Tall Ships Races were postponed due to the Coronavirus. However, if you are thinking about the Tall Ships Races 2021 then please get in touch so when we have more details, you will be the first to know!
Remember, a variety of bursaries will be available to help you jump onboard for the Tall Ships Races 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!
The 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! They are one of the largest free family events in Europe and provide an amazing cultural and educational experience for our trainees onboard – for many it will be their first time sailing, racing and being away from home!
Remember, no sailing experience is required and a Tall Ships or Small Ships adventure can be a great addition to a CV or provide the perfect summer break.
