We are very excited about the official announcement that Shetland will again host the Tall Ships Races at Lerwick between 26 – 29 July 2023. 

The promotions in the lead up to the event will be ramping up, and we have set ourselves an ambitious target to provide many trainee placements to take part in these amazing experiences.

As soon as restrictions are lifted, and it is safe to do, we will be offering new sailing placements.

Any available opportunities will be advertised through this page, our newsletter and in the local media. As we are not in a position to accept applications or expressions of interest at this stage, please check back for any updates.

Placements will be open to anyone aged 15 – 25 years, no previous sailing experience is necessary but you must have a keen sense of adventure!
