Trips are tailored to suit the age group. Young primary children are normally afloat for 1½ to 2 hours, and older primary children perhaps 2 to 3 hours.
Secondary classes can be anything from a few hours to a full day sail, or even a week long school trip to Norway and back.
Tall ships placements are typically longer up to two weeks or more, depending on the location and sea passages required. Some voyages require crossing the North Sea which can mean a few days without seeing any land and will involve races legs between host ports.
