Treat your youngster to a New Year’s Eve to remember sailing onboard one of Tall Ships Youth Trust’s iconic 72ft Challenger yachts!

This four-night adventure is the perfect starter voyage to learn the basics of sailing and work towards and achieve your RYA Start Yachting qualification.

This is a great experience for you to learn new skillsgain increased confidence and create lifelong memories.

 

Places you'll visit

You’ll sail through the Solent and then along the stunning south coast. Be sure to have your camera to hand, as you may spot dolphins, seals and fin whales. Likely stopovers include CowesPoole and Weymouth.

Takeaways from your sailing adventure

New skills. Increased confidence. New friendships. Memories.

Throughout the week, you’ll experience steering a yacht, sail handling, ropework as well as learning how to keep safe onboard. If conditions permit, you’ll also get to do some night sailing too.

We divide the crew into two teams (watches) – traditionally, known as Port and Starboard. In your watches, you’ll take it in turns to be involved in all aspects of sailing the Challenger from looking after her to cooking and cleaning.

Each crew member will receive a personal assessment covering their leadershipteamwork and communication skills— a great addition to your personal record of achievement.
