Belfast Tall Ship Sailing Taster Voyage - Belfast - Belfast

1st May 2019 - 3rd May 2019

Voyage Description

On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best sailing and shore landings for the forecast and most idyllic or sheltered anchors and ports. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights describe, but you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description below is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage. If the following voyage description is not fulfilled for any reason, Maybe Sailing and Maybe Sailing Youth Initiative cannot be held responsible.

Tall Ship taster voyage

Take to the Sea on this Tall Ship taster voyage. Test your sea legs as we head out of Belfast Lough and out to the Irish Sea. You will become fully immersed into the life a tall ship sailor, from hoisiting the sails to steering the ship and helping navigate and keeping the ships log.

The weather will dictate where we go, sometimes it is off to the Isle of Man for an overnight anchorage, into Strangford Loch, or even across the the Firth of Clyde.

Become a crew member

Become a crew member of a traditional tall ship.  Hoist the sails, steer the ship and navigate the seas whilst learning new skills and meeting new people.  Sail into the Irish Sea under the light of the stars; watch the dolphins play in the bow wave as you cruise past the Isle of Man and explore remote and hidden shores with your new found ship mates.

Visit new places, learn new skills, meet new people and make memories that will last a lifetime.
