These three day two night trips are an ideal taste Tall Ships life while sailing around the beautiful South East of Tasmania.

That really depends on the weather but optons could include sailing around Bruny Island, Frederick Henry Bay and Norfolk Bay.  If the wind is not too willing a bit of a sail around Storm Bay.  Towards evening we will find a scenic bay and anchor for the night.

Our Food
The Lady Nelson galley is small and our volunteer cooks make every attempt to cater to special dietary needs. As our storage facilities are limited and food is cooked in bulk, we may not always be able to satisfy every need. If you have concerns, please contact our friendly office staff prior to booking.

Your Tasks
You can climb the masts, furl and unfurl the sails, steer the ship, handle the lines, help out all round or watch the crew do it. Most people who come away on our trips want to get involved in sailing the ship. You do not have to go up the masts (unless you want to). It will be entirely up to you how much you get involved in the sailing versus just enjoying Tassie's spectacular coast as it passes you by.  After dinner you may want to join in singing a sea shanty or two.

We will have some mini courses where you can be taught basic navigation, Knots and splices and other nautical tasks.

Departure Dates
