Want to Set Sail on a Tall Ship in 2015?

Belfast Tall Ships is offering 80 people from Northern Ireland the chance to become trainee crew members as part of celebratinos next July when  tall ships from across the globe will anchor in Belfast for the start of The Lidl sponsored Belfast Titanic Maritime Festival, Belfast's biggest ever event.

The vessels will dock in Belfast from 2 July before departing on 5 July, for Ålesund in Norway. You can view the full route map on the Sail Training International website.

Belfast Tall Ships is offering the places on a ten-day voyage.

This unique opportunity is open to all ages and anyone can take part in a voyage. Contact the festival organisers for more information or send your details to Sail Training Ireland

Imagine the sense of accomplishment when you arrive in Ålesund having sailed 690 miles across the North Sea! Once there, you'll have a few days to celebrate your achievement with other crew and participate in the local social activities before returning home to Belfast.

Anyone can sail and no experience is necessary as some training will be provided.

You can watch a short video to see what it's like to be a crew trainee.
