 Weather Day   At the helm  Where shall we sail?

Sail Training is a fun and exciting adventure. Sailing offshore as part of a team that is responsible for the running of the boat will open a whole new world of challenges, skills and discovery. You don’t need any previous sailing experience as the staff on board will teach you everything you need to know.  You will meet new people and work together to set sails, steer, keep watch and even cook. Together you will meet the challenge of the sea.

Find out what Sail Training is all about and watch this 10 minute video courtesy of Sail Training International.

The UK Sail Training fleet is made up of a large variety of boats, from huge square-riggers to small yachts, from 100 year old gaff cutters to modern round-the-world racing yachts. The common link to all of these is that you will be able to experience working, living and sailing together on an offshore adventure. You will need to take responsibility, communicate and work together to ensure a successful journey.  ASTO member organisations provide Sail Training voyages to over 10,000 young people a year, and once you have sailed with us you’ll want to keep coming back for more!
