No experience is needed but a good level of general fitness is required. Classic Sailing are always actively seeking tall ships events suitable for all ages, however some Tall Ships Races may have quotas on crew aged over 25 as they are organised by sail training organisations and generally aimed at young people to promote international friendship. Tall Ship racing is a great way to meet new people of all nationalities, visit some wonderful ports and have an experience of a lifetime. Ring us for advice.

Want to sail a tall ship, but not racing ?

We have many tall ship voyages each year from day sails in Auckland or the UK to wildlife expeditions in Antarctica, The Arctic, or somewhere warmer like the South Pacific or Cape Verde.
