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".

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.

When the sails were raised it was amazing. The food was excellent and exceeded all expectations. The crew on board were very helpful and were... More

We were plied with more than enough to eat and drink and very good it was too! The ships are stunning and if you have the... More

Pretty easy to find on the day with parking right next to the wharf too. Crew were very welcoming, good food and a thoroughly nice day out on the Solent. Great photo opportunites too, especially from the bowsprit netting looking at the sea going past underneath!
