If you’re between 15 and 25 years old and looking for an adventure, now is the time to apply for a place as a sail trainee in The Tall Ships Races.
As a sail trainee, you will take part in all aspects of life on board a tall ship – you will set sails, climb the masts and feel the adrenaline of the competition with the other ships. When you arrive in the host port you will experience the festivities that the Tall Ships Races event bring to the city, and be invited to take part in crew activities with your fellow sail trainees. In 2018, you can choose between the legs Esbjerg (Denmark) – Stavanger or Stavanger – Harlingen (the Netherlands).
The Tall Ships Races Stavanger will coordinate which vessel you will sail with, and organize transportation to and from the host port. No prior sailing experience is required.
Please see further details and application form here. There are a limited number of sail trainee places available.
Here is some of the feedback from the sail trainees who participated in 2017:
«Best week ever!»
«One of the coolest things I’ve ever done»
«Memories for life!»
«Powerful and I learned a lot»
The Tall Ships Races 2018 Stavanger Sail Trainee Programme is supported by the Inge Steenslands Foundation and the Rogaland County Council.
