This trip has been amazing and I would recommend it to anyone.
The trip on the Swan...has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life
This opportunity has been a complete eye opener for me and I can only hope to do something like this again
It’s hard to think that 12 days ago we didn’t know each other at all but now were like a family sharing laughs and mischief
We have so many memories to share; the magic of the Mareel, the plunging waves and gales leaving us with salt swept hair

Sorry, the closing date for this year's scheme has passed. Our placements are advertised annually in Spring with a closing date before the Easter holidays.
This summer, Sail Training Shetland is supporting ten young people to take part in Nordic Sail onboard Shetland's own Sail Training vessel Swan.
Described as a ‘mini-Tall Ships event’, Nordic Sail is well-known for its friendly atmosphere. In each port activities are organised for the visiting crews, anything from barbecues, paddle boarding to raft building! This 18-day trip offers a unique chance to explore Scandinavia; enjoy exchange opportunities with other vessels and take part in planned and impromptu celebrations in host port locations.
Here’s a bit more about the ports Swan will visit:
Aalborg, Denmark. Aalborg has previously hosted Nordic Sail and will be a host port for The Tall Ships Races again in 2019.
Vagberg, Sweden. Varberg is a small town in the Bohuslan archipelago, lots of small islands and sandy beaches.
Fredrikstad, Norway. A large town, close to the border between Norway and Sweden and host port for The Tall Ships Races again in 2019.
