Sail Training & Education at Sea

For nearly fifty years Tall Ships America has been supporting sail training and education at sea. We have awarded more than $700,000 in financial aid, scholarships and awards to aspiring students, schools, ships and crews. We welcome newcomers to the tall ships world and we have compiled some resources that should help you learn more about how to choose a sailing program, what these vessels have to offer, and what financial aid opportunities are available to support your journey!

If you’re interested in choosing a tall ship or program to sail with take a look at “Choosing a Program.”

Tall Ships America offers scholarships and grants to support students and aspiring mariners! You can find them here.

If you’re an educator interested in tall ships or doing research on tall ships and traditional sailing our guide ‘Sheets, Shoals, and Sail Training: A tall ship sailor’s guide for educators’ should be helpful.
