Nothing can quite prepare you for the unforgettable atmosphere of racing. Picture yourself sailing on a beautiful Tall Ship, way out at sea, with the waves crashing against the hull, no land in sight, the sun rising behind you, and your closest competitor hot on your heels.

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.
The International Tall Ships Races are a unique opportunity for individuals aged 15 to 25 years to be involved and take part in a world class event. On Blue Clipper and all other participating ships, at least 50% of the crew will be young people. Maybe Sailing are happy for over 25 year old crew to sign up for the adventure of this tall ships race as long as they are prepared to enter into the spirit of what is essentially a young persons challenge and social event. If you sign up for the challenge on Blue Clipper you will be joining hundreds of other Ships and thousands of under 25 year olds to pit your wits at sea, in one of the greatest races on earth. You really are part of the crew and absolutely vital to the running of the ship.
Gruelling sailing, night watches, sun burn, salt spray, green waves over the deck, tacking and gybing your way to the finish line. Awaiting you there are thousands of spectators, well wishers, parties, parades, fairground rides, and a celebration of Youth and International Friendship like nothing else you can imagine. Blue Clipper will be racing in a class with other vessels a similar size, but you will be amongst the bigger tall ships too as you manoeuvre ready for the start, and you still have the close quarters thrill of the chase as the whole tall ships fleets race the same course.
The 2nd race of the Tall Ships Races 2023 will take you from the beautiful city of Lisbon to the ancient port of Cadiz.
Strategy will be key during your 4 day race. Following in the footsteps of sailors of old, you will have the perfect opportunity to experience the awe inspiring nature of life at sea.
Cadiz will provide a magnificent welcome as the host port for this leg of the Tall Ship Races 2023. Here, you can expect a truly electrifying four days of celebrations as the race series reaches its climax.
