Lord Nelson:
Poole (GB) - London (GB)

22 June - 29 June 2015

Sail from Poole to London on board the Lord Nelson, and discover the magic of life at sea. Meet Windseekers from all over the world, and work as a team to harness the wind, under the guidance of the experienced crew. The Lord Nelson is one of the few Tall Ships that is suitable for people with disabilities, enabling them to partake in Sail Training just like their able bodied friends. But make no mistake – Lord Nelson is no stranger to the rugged conditions on the North Sea and the English Channel, so expect plenty of action! On deck you’ll learn all about sailing a Tall Ship under the guidance of the experienced crew. For abled and disabled Windseekers alike. Open to all ages, minimum age 16 years.

Ports

Poole is a large town on the south coast of England. It has a quaint old harbor, and an attractive old town. The area is popular amongst wealthy people, so make sure a restaurant fits your budget before you order. Water sports are popular in the area, as is hiking and cycling. If you want to have a slightly more restful stay, Poole has a number of excellent beaches. The surrounding Dorset countryside is extraordinarily beautiful, so rent a car and explore if you have the time!

London is a centre for business, finance, the arts and tourism. As such, the city has something to offer for everyone. But visiting London by ship makes the experience extra special. Go see a play in West End, explore Soho, or take a tourist bus for a sightseeing ride. Go to Hyde Park, close to Buckingham Palace, if the city bustle is a bit much after an ocean voyage. And work on your cultural karma by visiting a few of the many museums. London is so big you’ll need to revisit to see it all!

    "IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO STEER FOR HOURS WHEN THE WIND WAS BLOWING AND EVEN WHEN IT WAS COMPLETELY DEAD. I LOVED TO SEE THE SEA, I LOVED THE SILENCE OF THE OCEAN."
