The Association

The Tasmanian Sail Training Association (TSTA) is a not-for-profit volunteer organisation responsible for sailing and maintaining the Sail Training Vessel Lady Nelson. Our mission is to provide sail training opportunities to the youth of Tasmania, give all Tasmanians the opportunity to learn about our state's maritime history and assist our volunteers to develop new skills and friendships. To support this mission we run a range of fund raising activities, including Harbour Sails and Charters.

We have members of all ages and from all walks of life. If you think that meeting new people, learning new skills and seeing Tasmania's maritime heritage up close sound like fun please contact the office to join the association.

Full training allows all members to become proficient at the level that suits them best.
