Set Sail Onboard A Schooner
A tall ship sailing holiday experience for those who love adventure and exploring. Set sail and leave everyday life on land behind for a short while. Feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair.
Onboard you’ll enjoy good food, wide horizons, sunsets over quiet anchorages, learn some new sailing skills and have the satisfaction of being part of the close knit ship’s crew.
Our schooner Trinovante has a reputation for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere onboard where the small crew numbers mean everyone gets to play a full role in sailing the ship. You will get to helm the ship too.
Join our tall ship sailing holidays solo, as most participants do, and we welcome beginners with open arms. Regardless of your skill level, our Sail Training program
Most people come on our tall ship sailing holidays on their own and beginners are very welcome. Whatever level you are at our Sail Training ensures that you receive comprehensive instruction to seamlessly integrate into the crew.
Sailing is a fantastic way to travel, get right off the beaten track, unwind amidst the vastness of the sea, explore and meet people. Arriving on a charismatic schooner means you are immediately embraced by the local scene wherever your nautical journey takes you.

Let me thank you again for the perfect weekend!
It was fantastic but, unfortunately too short.
All the people I met, the sailing, eating, an excellent mix of activity, training and relaxation, having tea all the time….and some beers in the evening.
This is the way I enjoy sailing.
Thanks for a fantastic week Bergen – Trondheim.
It is the skill of a successful host to take a gang of disparate (desperate?) folk and turn them into a group of friends – Well done!
We are thoroughly bitten by the bug and would like to have another go next year
When we weren’t zooming along at 8 knots there was plenty to keep us occupied, two sightings of dolphin, beautiful, clear starry night skies, perfect for shooting star viewing.
And my favourite thing; phosphorescence, and dancing on it when it was washed up on deck to make it sparkle.
We are Su and John, Mate and Skipper of Trinovante. We have been running our Tall Ship Sailing Holidays for the last seventeen years.
SchoonerSail is just one boat, the two of us, and all the fantastic people who sail with us in the summer.

Thanks to our friend Richard Sibley of the Tall Ships Gallery for letting us use his photos of Trinovante taken in the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta.
