Previous Voyages

In 2015, Sail Training Shetland supported twenty trainees to take part in two separate voyages.  

Nordisk Sejlads (Nordic Sail) took place between Tuesday 30 June to Saturday 11 July, an event gathering a fleet of traditionally rigged vessels in Skagerrak / Kattegat region. During this twelve day voyage, crew members congregated for planned and impromptu celebrations in host port locations at Hirtshals in Denmark, followed by a visit to Grimstad, Norway.  Read more about Nordic Sail on Facebook here.  

Our second voyage was The Tall Ships Races, Race Two which took place between Monday 27 July to Friday 7 August where trainees crossed the North Sea in Race Two of The Tall Ships Races 2015 between Kirstiansand, Norway and Aalborg, Denmark.  Read more about the Tall Ships Races here.  For both voyages, trainees were placed onboard Shetland's own sail training vessel Swan.
