Tall Ship Sailing Tester Voyage. Join this short trip on the beautiful Irish Sea to check your abilities and see if sailing is for you. Take a short break from your daily life and for two days forget about everything but sky, sea and wind. You will board and disembark in Belfast but the exact route will depend on wind and weather conditions. No sailing experience needed. For Windseekers of all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Belfast is the capital and the largest city of Northern Ireland. It started out as a small hamlet with fertile land along the mouth of the Lagan. Soon, marauders and pirates realised Belfast’s lough was deep and their shores were the perfect haven for repairing sea ravaged ships. Today Belfast is a wonderful city to explore! Visit the Titanic quarter waterfront, the Ulster Museum, or the Odyssey area where you'll find lots of entertainment. And spend some time in one of Belfast's many pubs.
