Wanted: Crew To Sail Away With Tall Ships

Posted on Thursday, August 10, 2017 13:49 PM

If you've ever dreamed of sailing off into the horizon on a tall ship, here's your chance.

Lord Nelson arrived in Lunenburg today and will spend 10 days sailing to Saint John New Brunswick beginning tomorrow.

Because of a group cancellation, ten spots have opened up to join the crew, at no cost.

Sam Webster with Lord Nelson explains.

"We'd really like to offer these places that have come available to anyone who might want to join the ship and go on an absolutely incredible adventure."

Webster says it is an unforgettable experience.

"It's kind of like joining the crew of the ship, really. We'd like to get everyone involved in sailing the ship. So you'll learn how to helm the ship, so, steer. You'll have the opportunity to climb the mast and set the sails and just learn all aspects of sailing."

Webster says Lord Nelson is one of only two tall ships in the world that is fully accessible.

He says food and accommodation are provided but you need to be at least 16 years old, find 10 days off and a ride home from Saint John.
