Glimpse of sail training and careers at sea

‘Sail Training and Careers at Sea’ was the flavour of a recent assembly, presented by Ben Swain, Director of Quaystage Training and a fully fledged officer with the UK Sail Training fleet. With 20 years of experience onboard vessels of various sizes, Ben presented exciting alternatives to conventional summer and gap year travel. With opportunities to gain qualifications, life skills and the all important travel adventures, students gained a glimpse in to the possibilities available. The Tall Ships Race 2014 is around the Baltic and offers young people aged 16-25 the chance to see new places, become part of a team and race a tall ship against the Mexican and Argentine navy!
