Fancy sailing in Liverpool’s Tall Ship Regatta?

Young people across Merseyside are being invited to sign up to the voyage of a lifetime as part of the famous Tall Ships Regatta which takes place in Liverpool this May.

The Sail Trainee project, will see 50 local youngsters, aged from 16, join the crew of a tall ship on a 5-day voyage from Liverpool to Dublin.

The Sail Trainee project is part of the Tall Ships Regatta, which comes to Liverpool between May 25-28, before setting sail for Dublin and then on to Bordeaux, in France.

Liverpool’s Director of Culture, Claire McColgan, said: “No experience is necessary and you will get the chance to experience hands on sailing and being at sea. It really is the voyage of a lifetime.”

The regatta, which is a celebration of international friendship and understanding, represents countries from all over the world. It will be the fifth time Liverpool has hosted the Tall Ships fleet after having the vessels grace the River Mersey in 1984, 1992, 2008 and 2012.

The Three Festivals Tall Ships Regatta Festival forms part of the Liverpool 2018 programme which celebrates ten years since the city’ game-changing year as European Capital of Culture and will also include the prestigious Bordeaux Wine Festival and spectacular artistic commissions.

An open evening takes place on March 26 at 6pm at the Cunard Building, in Liverpool. To book your place, email
