The crew & volunteer crew are great; supportive & encouraging and very safety conscious but not in an overbearing way. We learnt so much, together with a new respect for the men who worked... More

What can I say !, amazing day and one of the best experiences I have had. You get a little taste of everything, from helming, rope work, to going aloft (if you want to) and because everyone is in the same boat, literally, everyone mucks in and you soon laughing and joking like old friends.

Get on the Stavros Niarchos before you are too old!! I did a week's cruise around Tenerife in early December with the Tall Ship Youth Trust as a 63 year old member of "red watch".
