Public interest and excitement in the Tall Ships fleet in host ports grows every year. It's no wonder that, after the Olympics, it’s the world’s largest spectator sport or exhibition event in the world. This year's event is predicted to attract 120 Tall Ships from around the world, bringing with it thousands of young people of all backgrounds from over thirty nationalities.

It's a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Denmark, Finland, Latvia and Poland and take part in an event and spectacle not to be missed. Search for trainee crew places here.
