The Tall Ships Youth Trust is excited to announce that Stavros S Niarchos will be visiting Blyth and hosting an open day for the public.

She will be arriving at the port of Blyth with 40 students from Emmanuel Schools on board following their 10 night voyage from Southampton.

The 200ft brig is the biggest to be built in the UK in a century and the open day will provide the public with the opportunity to go on board, explore her magnificent decks and learn more about a modern day square rigged brig.

Open Ship, Saturday 27th June, 12-5pm.

The Tall Ships Youth Trust will be hosting a sponsored rig climb in the morning (10am-12pm) prior to the open day. If you would like the opportunity to go up and over on board Stavros, please contact Mike Bloomfield ([email protected]) for more information. Limited spaces available.

If you’ve always wanted to sail a Tall Ship, the 5 night Taster voyage taking place after the Open Day is the perfect opportunity to get on board. Giving you an insight to life at sea, this Taster Voyage will introduce you to the North Sea, with some fantastic coastline and a variety of wildlife to see.
