Take on an Irish Sea Adventure in Summer 2019
If you're lucky enough to be aged between 18 and 25 then look no further. This is a great pick for those looking to take on a new challenge, gain new skills and meet new people. You'll join the tall ship MAYBE in Oban, Scotland on August 5th, ready to begin an unforgettable 5 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. This one's an ideal choice if you're hoping to earn the Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Residential Award or the Gaisce President’s Award Ireland.
Sailing with other young people from across the UK and Ireland, Maybe Sailing's youth voyages promise that even though you may step aboard as strangers to each other, you'll be sure to leave as a family.
This is your chance to become the crew of a traditional tall ship and test your sea legs in the sheltered waters of the Scottish Islands before taking on a crossing of the Irish Sea.
The itinerary depends on the weather, though past voyages of this type have seen visits to secluded towns and bays, warming beach bonfires and even swimming.
Your journey aboard this beautiful Gaff Rigged Ketch will end in Londonderry/Derry, Northern Ireland where you'll disembark on August 10th.
