What are Tall Ships ?
Tall Ships are large Sailing Vessels that were already in use several centuries ago, they were, in fact, the types of ships that were used during the Age of Discovery.
A traditional Tall Ship features multiple masts with square and gaff rigs, as well as topsails.
The term Tall Ship is said to have been coined by mariner and author Joseph Conrad in his books. Famous writer Henry David Thoreau also mentioned tall ships in his very first book. A Tall Ship, in effect, refers to a sailing vessel that is quite high and rather impressive to look at.
Nowadays, Tall Ships are no longer in use as popular means of transportation, they have been replaced by lighter, modern, motorised types of ships and boats. Now, they almost solely serve as recreational vessels.
Many resort towns are home to companies organizing cruises on Tall Ships, cruises that may or may not last more than one day.
From afternoon excursions to overnight, week long and even multi month trips, Tall Ship Sailing can be done no matter the duration and type of your holiday.
Those trips are organised by trained and experienced professionals, it is impossible to go on an independent Tall Ship Sailing trips, unless, of course, you own your own Tall Ship.
