  • Christian Radich
    A Norwegian sailing ambassador and a sail training ship with various forms of training programmes. Christian Radich was built by Framnæs Mech. Yard in 1937. She was built as a sail training ship: the orlops (dormitories) had capacity for berthing 80-90 students (maximum 80 today after renovation), a large galley for learning to cook, carpentry training, and earlier there was also a machine shop on board (where the galley is now) for the training of engineers. The purpose of the training ship was to train sailors. Sailing-ships were the usual vessels around the turn of the century and that is why the sailing ships continued as a school ship later on. Sailing with us is a positive challenge – both physically and mentally – and its a unique opportunity to experience one of the world`s most famous windjammers! Wind, ocean, and freedom; make the dream a reality! Prior sailing experience is not necessary, our crew will supervise you on board. Oslo, Norway

  • Flagship Niagara - U.S. Brig Niagara
    The U.S. Brig Niagara, home-ported in Erie, Pennsylvania, is a faithful reconstruction of Oliver Hazard Perry's relief flagship during the Battle of Lake Erie. An embodiment of the dual mission of the Erie Maritime Museum and Flagship Niagara League, she serves as the centerpiece exhibit of the Erie Maritime Museum as well as a sail training vessel, part of an experiential learning program to preserve the art of historic square-rig seamanship. Perhaps the original vessel's most pivotal hour came on September 10, 1813 at the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. At the battle's climax, Oliver Hazard Perry transferred from his original flagship Lawrence to Niagara, raised his battle flag emblazoned with the words "Don't Give Up the Ship", and ordered the brig for "close action" – severing the British line and leading to the enemy's unconditional surrender.

  • UK Sail Training
    Sail Training is a fun and exciting adventure. Sailing offshore as part of a team that is responsible for the running of the boat will open a whole new world of challenges, skills and discovery. You don't need any previous sailing experience as the staff on board will teach you everything you need to know. You will meet new people and work together to set sails, steer, keep watch and even cook. Together you will meet the challenge of the sea. The UK Sail Training fleet is made up of a large variety of boats, from huge square-riggers to small yachts, from 100 year old gaff cutters to modern round-the-world racing yachts. The common link to all of these is that you will be able to experience working, living and sailing together on an offshore adventure. You will need to take responsibility, communicate and work together to ensure a successful journey. ASTO member organisations provide Sail Training voyages to over 10,000 young people a year, and once you have sailed with us you’ll want to keep coming back for more! Gosport, Hampshire, England, UK

  • Young Endeavour
    Australia's national sail training ship. The Young Endeavour Youth Scheme is a not for profit organisation which provides young Australians with a unique, challenging and inspirational experience at sea. Our voyages increase self awareness, develop teamwork and leadership skills and create a strong sense of community responsibility amongst members of the youth crew. Young people reap enormous benefit from the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme's sail training program, and in turn, the Australian people also benefit as participants recognise their potential to make positive contributions to the community. STS Young Endeavour is a tall ship purpose built for sail training. Designed by Colin Mudie FRINA and built at Brooke Yachts Ltd, she was gifted to Australia by the United Kingdom for Australia's bicentenary in 1988. Young Endeavour is a brigantine (a two-masted sailing ship with a square-rigged foremast and a mainmast rigged fore and aft). She measures 44 metres and displaces 239 tonnes. Young Endeavour is designed to travel at up to 14 knots under sail and up to 10 knots under power. Potts Point, NSW Australia
