7 days on Lord Nelson From:£975 *

UK and Europe (Coastal) - LN960

After a three year wait… Battle of the Barques is returning for 2018!

The series of epic challenges in the English Channel will see Lord Nelson attempt to continue it’s clean sweep of victories over rival tall ship, Tenacious. You could join the crew on ‘Nellie’ to help continue this winning streak – but book now before the places have gone.

Both of our ships will be back home to celebrate the Trust’s 40th anniversary – and what better way to mark the occasion than some friendly racing along the Solent!

The Battle

After setting sail from Southampton, the ships will spend the first night anchored in the Solent before a day of training to get the crew ready for battle. Our Captains and Race Directors will then assess the week’s weather conditions, before briefing the crews on the race courses and events.

In previous competitions, the challenges have featured voyages across to France and back. This has provided some exhilarating sailing for both ships side by side, but as with all voyages is dependent on wind conditions. In years gone by, we have also seen a series of shorter races along the English coast. Our Captains always design races that are fun and exciting, and that suit the weather conditions.

Battle of the Barques will be sure to be one of the highlight of the Jubilee Sailing Trust’s 40th anniversary celebrations, so if you fancy joining in the fun, be sure to book your place now – berths on both ships will be in high demand so now is the time to pick your ship and book your place!

SPECIAL OFFER: First 28 bookings on this voyage receive £75 discount!
