Welcome to the home of the Lady Nelson and Tasmanian Sail Training Association
Winter Sailing Schedule
During winter the Lady Nelson sails at 1100 (11am) and 1300 (1pm) on most Saturdays and Sundays. Bookings are recommended, but not essential. Please see the Harbour Sails page for more information.
Based at the beautiful, picturesque waterfront of Hobart and just minutes' walk from the centre of town, the full size replica of the original Deptford built Brig is a popular sight with locals and tourists alike.
The Lady Nelson sails majestically up and down the River Derwent to the joy and delight of her passengers who are offered the opportunity to enjoy a tall ship sailing experience. Passengers are able to help set sails, take a turn at the helm or just enjoy the feel of a traditional sailing ship at sea.
For the younger folk there are organised Pirate Sails and for the slightly older sailors a Taste of Sail is offered that provides an exciting opportunity to join the crew aloft and learn how to handle sails.
For the more adventurous folk Sail Away Weekends are held periodically. Leaving Friday night and returning Sunday, these aim to provide the complete sailing experience and showcase Tasmania's superb food and wine.
