Tall Ships on the West Coast -- Summer 2005

Have you always wanted to sail on a traditional tall ship?

It's great fun, but hard work.

Most tall ships are not like cruise ships -- you are expected to help with the operation of the ship -- you'll probably help stand watch, haul on lines, help with chores and maintenance and learn a lot about sailing and seamanship -- all while whooshing along at 10-12 knots -- what an experience!

As many as 45 traditionally-rigged sailing vessels from 5 countries will participate in the Tall Ships Challenge Race Series this summer. They'll visit 7 ports in British Columbia, Washington State and California from June 23-August 22nd. You could sail on one of the race legs between host ports.

To learn more, visit the sail training web site in the 'Links' section or send an email message to -- they will help you decide which ship is right for you. They say previous sailing experience is not required.
