Cornish Summer Sailing. Become a trainee crew member on board Tall Ship Maybe, sailing with young people from across the UK, Ireland and the rest of Europe.

Whatever happens on this trip, you will make new friends, learn new skills and make memories that will last forever. This voyage qualifies for Duke of Edinburgh Gold Residential and Gaisce President’s Award Ireland. For all Windseekers over 15 years old.
Falmouth lies near the southwestern tip of the United Kingdom. It’s a quaint port town, surrounded by grassy hills and forests, and famous for its harbor. Going on a hike here is very rewarding! Sailing is a popular pastime in Falmouth, so don’t be surprised if you’re engaged in a lively discussion on the finer points of navigation over a beer in one of the local pubs. Falmouth has been a kind port to Tall Ships, hosting the Tall Ships Races in 1966, 1982, and 1998.
