Young people from Sail Training organisations around the UK have travelled to Scotland this week to take part in the Small Ships Race organised by ASTO and RYA Scotland. Three of the vessels are later participating in a major Tall Ships Regatta at the end of August.
A total of nine vessels started the race on Tuesday with around 120 young people aged between 12 and 25 on board from a wide range of backgrounds.
Challenge Wales, Maybe and Swan will all be honing their racing skills this week ahead of taking part in the Falmouth to Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta from 28 August, organised by Sail Training International. Each has space for 12 young people on board and have travelled from Cardiff (Challenge Wales), Shetland (Swan) and the east coast of Yorkshire (Maybe) to take part.
They are each very different vessels with their own interesting history but now with Sail Training in common.
