What better way to blow away those cobwebs, and at the same time experience some fun and adventure on the first sail of the season, on the magnificent ship, the STV One & All, on Sunday 6th September. This also could be the day for you to do something different for Father's day, by treating Dad and why not bring the family along too and experience sailing on the state's most iconic ship.
If you wish, there are plenty of opportunities to learn how to set some sails and haul in some lines.
The day consists of 5 hours at sea to experience the ship under sail, view beautiful beaches and coastline from the deck, as well as sight water friends - the dolphins.
It is entirely up to you whether you wish to get involved in the various activities on board. There are plenty of opportunities to set some sails, haul in some lines, climb the rigging, and helm the wheel. The crew of One & All will show you the "ropes" to experience what sailing at sea was like 150 years ago.
You scale the rigging , under the supervision of the experienced crew.
If you wish, under the supervision of the experienced crew, and the added security of 21st century safety gear, you scale the rigging, just like he sailors of yesteryear and enjoy the view from on high. You may get lucky and be the first to cry, 'Dolphins Ho!'
Or if you prefer a more lay-back day, you can sit back in the deck chairs and soak up the sun, sea, scenery and atmosphere on this unique ship in the "Millionaire's Row" deck chairs. On board catering, tea, coffee and cool drinks are included.
