Other vessels operated: TS Caroline Allen
Little Brig Sailing Trust operates Bob Allen and Caroline Allen - the world's smallest tall ships. Each brig is 30 foot long, has 100 ropes, ten sails and takes 5 young sailors (aged 10+) for approx 2-3 hours at a time - their first trip on a tall ship. Our vessels work in exactly the same way as the big ones - except the loads are lighter, the ropes are smaller and everyone gets to do every job - helming, bracing, sheeting in and setting or handing sail - all from the safety of the cockpit. We welcome all abilities - in fact anyone who is prepared to give us three hours of their time to try tall ship sailing.
