Short Sails

90 minute Tall Ship Harbour Sails From Hobart

Come aboard and experience tall ship sailing on one of the world's most picturesque harbours.

Haul on a line, set the sails, steer the ship - or just relax and take in the scenery.   

Where we go and the number of sails put up will be based on the weather and the number of volunteer crew and passengers.

Welcome to the Lady Nelson Tasmania.

Based at the beautiful, picturesque waterfront of Hobart and just minutes' walk from the centre of town, this two masted, square rigged tallship is a popular sight with locals and tourists alike.

Built locally in 1988, the ship is a full size replica of the original Lady Nelson Brig that brought the first European settlers to Hobart in 1803 - read about the orginal and replica ships in "Our Story".  

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.

Managed by the Tasmanian Sail Training Association, the vessel is run entirely by trained and qualified volunteers who crew and maintain the ship.  All of the funds we raise providing a sailing experience contribute directly to the running of the ship. 

We welcome donations which can be Tax Deductible.
