Although anyone can take part in a Sail Training voyage, there are advantages to becoming a Sail Training Ireland member.
In 2012, Sail Training Ireland has been involved in placing over 140 trainees on Tall Ships throughout the Tall Ships Races and the Irish Sea Races. Using various forms of funding they have enabled youths from all over Ireland to take part in the Sail Training adventure and benefit from this invaluable life experience. Although targeting youth trainees, there are no age limitations for trainees and inevitably those who take on the Tall Ship challenge, whatever their age, have something to offer.
Sail Training Ireland members are kept up to date with all the latest offers on Tall Ship voyages, both in Ireland and abroad.
Through their experiences, staff are able to advise on funding opportunities for youth groups and individuals, and actively seek funding and support through a number of youth organisations, including Leargas and the Jubilee Sailing Trust amongst others. This enables members to get the best price possible for their voyage on reputable, well established vessels.
