General information on Tall Ships races and events
The Tall Ships series brings together sail training vessels crewed by young people aged 15-25 from all over the world., ranging from the largest square-rigged vessels, through a wide range of traditional boats, to the Class C vessels, which are yachts with a more modern rig.
The host ports of a Tall Ships series traditionally lay on superb hospitality for visiting crews, with festivals, entertainments, a wide range of activities and a chance to see other vessels and visit the town itself.
These are some of the most adventurous voyages the Ocean Youth Trust South ever does, and taking part is always an unforgettable experience.
For official Tall Ships voyages or other voyages starting and finishing at Tall Ships festivals, the age range for our crew members is 15-25. This is a rule set by the Tall Ships event organisers: only a proportion of crew members can be aged 15 (in our case, a maximum of eight or nine) and the rest must be 16+.
Voyages which do not involve time at any Tall Ships festival or taking part in Tall Ships races can include young people in OYT South's normal age range of 12-25 - except for the one voyage which has been designated for adults (18+).
We take both male and female crew, and no previous sailing experience is required - all we ask is that you bring enthusiasm, a willingness to join in, learn new skills and work together with the rest of the crew.
