Join us for an adventure to remember as we set sail onboard our magnificent Tall Ship.
For those with an adventurous streak, sailing on board the Spirit of Falmouth is a fantastic way to leave everyday life behind for a while.
‘Spirit’ is our traditional 91-foot wooden Tall Ship, gifted to the charity in 2014 by The Prince’s Trust. The Mersey Pilot Schooner was built using traditional methods in Liverpool in 1985 and requires a core crew of six with the capacity to carry twelve passage crew.
Weighing in at 88 tonnes, she is as long as seven cars and weighs the equivalent of a blue whale. With a wide deck for ease of movement, she can be sailed by a crew with varied physical abilities.
To help the crew fully experience and enjoy life at sea, the vessel also offers comfortable accommodation. There are eighteen bunks and two cabins on board, along with two ‘heads’ (toilets) and a purpose built galley and saloon.
Spirit requires great teamwork to make her sail, so while on board the emphasis is on leadership and team cohesion. From the moment you step aboard you will be an integral part of the crew and involved in all aspects of sailing.
You will have a chance to learn all aspects of traditional sailing from our professional deck crew, with the chance to steer the ship, plot our course on the chart, complete log book entries, climb the rigging, and experience the beautiful coastline!
