The Tall Ships Races are far more than a city festival with spectacular vessels, music and entertainment. At the heart of the event is the element of strengthening the skills and competences of young people through sail training.

Are you between 15-25 years old then you have the opportunity to be one of the TRAINEES sailing from Antwerp to Aalborg during the Tall Ships Races 2022.

Every year thousands of young people from all over Europe are boarding one of the beautiful tall ships participating in the race.

As a trainee, you will be part of the crew and get to experience life and all of the tasks onboard and you are a part of the actual race.

You don’t need to have any previous experience sailing so all you have to bring is curiosity and the desire to learn about the leadership, teamwork and communication.

Onboard the ship you will work alongside the permanent crew alternating between various tasks such as cooking, cleaning deck duty, navigation, climbing the masts and social activities with the other trainees.

It is expected that you participate in all the different tasks. The language onboard is English.
