Members of the Square Rigger Club have the opportunity of sailing TS ROYALIST on at least two weekends each year. The ship takes twenty four crew and has a permanent crew of six. Additionally, there may be longer weekend or a week's charter dependent on the availability of the ship. These weekends are for adults only, age range from 16 years to 70's plus, the only prerequisite being the enthusiasm tempered with a reasonable level of fitness. No previous experience of sailing ships is required, as all training will be provided on board. Details of charters for the current year are now available.

For those who have built up some experience sailing in TS ROYALIST, there are the opportunities for training as watch officers and crew with the Sea Cadets. There is a permanent crew of five plus watch officers and trainees on board. Female crew is especially encouraged as it is mandatory to have adult female crew on board when sailing with female cadets. For information, contact the Offshore Commander or Captain of TS Royalist.
Another opportunity for members of the Square Rigger Club Charity is to charter one of the Sea Cadet's offshore yachts. These are Tradewind 35s', all fitted out for sailing offshore and with a permanent skipper. For more information on yacht charter either our Charter Secretary, (particularly if you wish to make up a crew) or call The Offshore Commander, The Sea Cadets, Fort Blockhouse, Gosport, Hants.
