Tall Ship Phoenix leaves Galway bound for Warrenpoint Tall Ship Phoenix leaves Galway bound for Warrenpoint

Movie Star Tall Ship Phoenix passed through the Port of Galway's gates and on into the Atlantic Ocean yesterday.

Nine teenagers from Galway, Dublin, Belfast, and Ballyclare will be cooking, cleaning, and sailing alongside the professional crew as they make their way to Warrenpoint in Northern Ireland. The voyage, organised by the Atlantic Youth Trust, is aimed at highlighting the benefits and value of educating and developing young people through sailing ships.

Over the weekend the ship had thousands of guests, each learnt how the government has now included the Atlantic Youth Trust's plans for a new all island youth development tall ship in the Programme for Government. Once operational the new ship will play a vital role in introducing young people to the joys and opportunities in the maritime sector along with the wider personal development benefits of spending time at sea.
