You'll join the tall ship Trinovante in Ipswich on April 26th, ready to begin an unforgettable 3 day Sail Training voyage that both begins and ends in the United Kingdom. You'll be getting hands on with setting the sails, steering the ship, keeping watch and more throughout the voyage and the best part is that no experience is required in order to join - you'll be taught everything you need to know before you need to know it at every stage throughout the journey.
Dip a toe in the water for a sailing weekend in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Set sail on the Thames Estuary, Trinovante's home territory. Steeped in sailing history and tradition it's one of the last places in the UK where you will see traditionally rigged boats as a matter of course. Sailing barges and fishing smacks sail and race here throughout the season. Quiet river anchorages echo with the distinctive call of oyster catchers while many other wading birds feed on the mud flats as the tide ebbs and flows. Just a day sail up the coast, you'll be part of the busy commercial activity on the River Orwell at Felixstowe, the largest container port in the country. In one weekend you’ll be setting the sails, steering, anchoring, meeting a new group of people enjoying sunsets, starlit skies and more. Sea Miles 100.
Your journey aboard this beautiful Gaff Schooner Three Masts will end in Ipswich where you'll disembark on April 29th. Please note the minimum age for anybody joining this voyage is 18.
