Brilliant day out

Loved it one of my favourite places to visit so much to see and do. Probably not great for those in a wheel chair die to the steep stairs in the old ships

What can I say !, amazing day and one of the best experiences I have had. You get a little taste of everything, from helming, rope work, to going aloft (if you want to) and because everyone is in the same boat, literally, everyone mucks in and you soon laughing and joking like old friends. The crew, full and volunteer,... More

Get on the Stavros Niarchos before you are too old!! I did a week's cruise around Tenerife in early December with the Tall Ship Youth Trust as a 63 year old member of "red watch". Great camerarderie and fun, even though hauling on the sheets can be hard work, as can the 4 hours on, 4 hours off, 4 hours... More

When I was 14 I had the opportunity to Sail the Solent and meet new friends! This company boosted my confidence and being independant! While your at sea you have great fun and learn new skills! If anyone get the chance to do this experience it is a life changing!

My wife & I joined Helen and the girls for a day to remember watching the Volvo Ocean Port Race just outside Gosport and it was fantastic. Would definately recommend this kind of trip to anybody no matter how much experience you have. Sat on the bow sprit and got some great pictures too. Can't wait for the next trip.
