Join an iconic Challenger on an iconic voyage as you follow the route of the famous Fastnet race on this 8 night adventure voyage.
This is more than just a Fastnet re-enactment; you’ll be sailing the course and then returning back to the Solent completing a 700 nm passage, including rounding the famous Fastnet Rock.
Your voyage will begin with meet and greet followed by a safety briefing before heading out onto the water to start your training. You will spend the first night in Cowes before heading out to start the passage to the Fastnet Rock.

All of our youth voyages (12-25) offer a bursary of approximately 30% of the voyage fee. Anyone who cannot join one of our life changing voyages due to their circumstances can apply for a bursary. Funds are limited, but we will always offer support when we can. Apply for a bursary: https://www.tallships.org/forms/bursary-application
