The international sail training & tall ships

Seville 2018

We were delighted to be able to bring the International Sail Training and Tall Ships Conference to Seville, from Thursday 29 November to Saturday 1 December 2018.

Occupying the coveted number one spot in Lonely Planet’s Best Places to visit in 2018, Seville is a city abundant in flamenco dancing, gothic architecture and mouth-watering tapas and churros…. the perfect setting for our annual conference.


The Sail Training International Annual Conference is always a ‘must attend’ event and was open to everyone involved in Sail Training for young people. Our attendees this year included vessel operators, sail training programme providers, future Tall Ships Races host port providers, bidding cities and host ports for future events and representatives from Sail Training International endorsed events.

The conference this year was held at the Melia Lebreros Hotel, Seville – a modern conference facility in the heart of the city. Further details about the Melia Leberos Hotel can be found here
