Sail to Adventure  Land Ahoy?  Sailing joy

It’s just before six in the morning and you’ve been at the helm for the last hour, steering a 60 foot Tall Ship into the sunrise. You can smell cooking from down below and your lookout has just spotted a pod of dolphins in the distance! The oncoming watch work together to put up more sail and soon you are amongst them.  After watching and calling to the dolphins, you head down below for breakfast, confident that your crew mates will keep the boat safe while you get some well-deserved sleep.


Who would have thought that a week ago you had never set foot on a boat, let alone knew how to sail?  This is what Sail Training is all about – an adventure you will remember for the rest of your life.  To start your own adventure, take a look at these UK Sail Training organisations, or find your nearest by looking at the Members Map.
