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.
Under the watchful eyes of our fully trained permanent crew you will become a trainee crew member on board Tall Ship Maybe, sailing with like-minded young people. Learn about teamwork, leadership whilst learning skills in sailing a traditional tall ship. Help hoist the sails, steer the ship and navigate the seas! See amazing scenery. Spot amazing wildlife. You don’t need any experience at all as you will learn everything you need to know on board.
You will gain knowledge of sailing, learn to live and work alongside others, gain knowledge in marine conservation and the part you have to play in the conservation of our oceans.
But, most importantly, you will have a fantastic adventure which you will share with new friends and will be etched in your memory forever.
This voyage qualifies for Duke of Edinburgh Gold Residential and Gaisce Gold Award.

How to get to Dublin
Getting to Dublin is increasingly easy and popular with many airlines, Etihad, Emirates and United Airlines, opening new routes in recent years. With the emergence of low cost air-travel, along with traditional carriers, it has never been easier or less expensive to travel to Dublin.
Even though Ireland is an island, access is easy by sea for both ferry and cruise. Passengers arriving in Dublin have a choice of two disembarkation points, depending on which ferry or cruise company is used. Dublin Port is centrally located, only minutes from the city centre.
The easiest way to get to the quays is Connolly Station for Custom House Quay (north side of the river) and Tara Street Station for Sir John Rogerson’s Quay (South side of the river). Both stations are a short walk from the quays.
There are excellent ferry connections daily from the UK and mainland Europe, while the capital also hosts in excess of 100 cruise liners annually which is of growing popularity for visitors to include Dublin on their travel itineraries.
Transport for Ireland is a good option for visitors looking to co-ordinate public transport in Ireland. The website brings together service information, directions and time estimates for bus, tram and rail transport in the city.
