The majestic Tall Ships and the essential contribution to youth development of sail training have inspired many publications. Here you will be able to see a selection of these works and details on how to purchase them.

The spectacular sight of a tall ship under sail or in port recalls a bygone age of adventure, romance and national heritage. This book – supported and endorsed by Sail Training International – is a celebration of tall ships today. With 375 photographs and other illustrations and authoritative text, it features the world’s most interesting and glamorous tall ships, the excitement and drama of sailing and racing on them, and the evolution in tall ship design and technology.

Order your copy of Tall Ships Today through Bloomsbury Publishing and one-third of the cover price will be held in a special Sail Training International fund to help disadvantaged and disabled young people benefit from a sail training voyage.

‘Life at sea in a sailing ship is a contest with natural forces, which can only be won by knowledge, skill and determination … I very much welcome the publication of this splendid book.’

HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
