The STI Tall Ships Races

The most exciting and challenging summer adventure imaginable


The STI Tall Ships Races

The Sail Training International (STI) Tall Ships Races are a unique opportunity for individuals aged 15 to 25 years to be involved and take part in a world class event. You will be escorted to the boat in any of the international harbours, joining hundreds of other Ships and thousands of under 25’s to pit your wits at sea, in one of the greatest races on earth.

Gruelling sailing, night watches, sun burn, salt spray, green waves over the deck, tacking and gybing your way to the finish line. Awaiting you there are thousands of spectators, well wishers, parties, parades, fairground rides, and a celebration of Youth and International Friendship like nothing else you can imagine.

Everyone should experience The Tall Ships Races…
