It could be the adventure of a lifetime. To act as crew on board a Tall Ship taking part in The Tall Ships Race when it sets off from Sunderland in 2018.
The ethos of The Tall Ships Race is about giving people a life changing experience through learning to sail and being part of a multi national crew.
To take part in the Race a Tall Ship must have half of its crew made up of 15 - 25 year olds.
As host port Sunderland must co-ordinate 100 sail trainee places but the city hopes to enable even more people to take part. It does cost £1500 for a place but the city is raising funds to pay for the places. Local businesses are being encouraged to sponsor people taking part and bursaries are on offer. The focus is on 15 - 25 year olds but applications from anyone older than 25 are welcome.

The appeal to find the 100+ Sail Trainees was launched by Paralympic Sailor, John Robertson.
A small group of Sail Trainees have already signed up and pledged to take part. They are acting as Ambassadors to encourage others to get involved.
