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.
