* Last places: contact info@windseeker.org to confirm availability * Battle of the Barques. Join in this exciting competition between two Tall Ships: Lord Nelson and Tenacious. You will spend the first night anchored in the Solent and do some training the next day, before the exact route of the race is set – this will depend on the weather conditions at the time. You will spend your days trying to win the battle, before getting back to port and celebrating the Jubilee Sailing Trust’s 40th anniversary. Open for able-bodied and disabled trainees. Minimum age 16 years. More info: info@windseeker.org The final price may be subject to small changes due to currency exchange rates.

Ports

Southampton, on the shores of the Solent, is the largest port of England. The bustling town offers plenty of distractions, and is known (sometimes reviled) for its brutalist architecture. However, the city hosts a number of fine museums, the Tudor House, and long stretches of medieval walls. Also, the beautiful English countryside is just a short drive away. The yearly Southampton boat show in september should be on any Windseeker’s calendar. And don’t forget to visit the Isle of Wight!
