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.
Learn about teamwork, leadership whilst learning skills in sailing a traditional tall ship. There will plenty of opportunities to visit some secluded and isolated towns and bays, maybe have a bonfire on the beach or cool off in the fresh ocean water. Whatever happens on this trip, you will make new friends, learn new skills and make memories that will last forever.
This voyage begins in Belfast, where you will first set eyes on TS Maybe and meet the other trainees. You may join the boat as strangers, but you will leave as family! With 4 permanent crew on board to guide you on your voyage. Following safety briefs and unpacking it will be time to set sail on your adventure. Where you will go on this voyage will depend on the wind and weather conditions. Sailing the Irish Sea is full opportunities and challenges. Maybe you will visit the Isle of Mann or the Scottish borders. You may sail across to the Welsh Coast or explore the coast of Ireland. The wind will dictate the passage that you take from Belfast to Dublin.
You will be fully immersed into every aspect of sailing and living on board a traditional Tall Ship. Set the sails, take the helm, cook delicious meals in the galley, learn seamanship skills and help to keep the vessel ship shape and Bristol fashion!
