2019 Adult Sailing Trips

Young or old, sailing on a tall ship is an attainable dream. The ships are all as different as the weather and the people who sail them but the experience of life at sea on a sailing ship as a member of the crew is always rewarding and life-changing. Ask Ishmael. 

Tall Ships Portland is happy to provide here some ideas for adults who would like to go sailing. There are no prerequisites of any kind. But be forewarned: you will not return to land the same person as when you left. What 'vacation' can make that claim?
