The Falmouth organisers of the Tall Ships event have today announced that, with the continuing uncertain situation throughout Europe and across the globe around COVID, the event planned for 17-19 August 2021 has been cancelled.
This is obviously disappointing news for all involved, especially our voyagers.
However the organisers have said that other options are being considered, about which further announcements will be made in the near future.
We have also heard from the management of Tall Ship Maybe, who have told us they are happy to go ahead with some sort of voyage for our young people on the arranged dates.
So although there appears to be little chance of the trip happening as originally planned, we are confident, all being well, that we’ll be able to offer the voyagers some kind of adventure aboard Maybe and await further information from the Falmouth organisers before deciding what shape it will take.
Meanwhile we intend to go ahead with the second training day aboard Maybe in July, which will include presentations about marine life and career opportunities in the superyacht industry, as well as a presentation and tour of Pendennis shipyard.
Watch this space.
