What is Vitamin Sea Sail?

Vitamin Sea Sail is a non-profit project in which has a main goal to give youth between 18-25 years the opportunity to experience life at sea. It will be four scholarships available in the summer of 2021. It is possible to apply for a scholarship when you have booked a voyage with a tall ship (or small ship) that will participate in the Tall Ships Races 2021.

PS! You do not need any sailing experience beforehand in order to be a relevant candidate for the scholarship, or to participate in the Tall Ships Races in general.

The Tall Ships Races 2020 have now been moved to 2021 due to COVID-19. This means that the Tall Ships Races 2021 will now be prolonged, and the opportunities to sail will be multiple. The Corona situation has also led to changes within Vitamin Sea Sail, and as mentioned there will be four scholarships available that cover a part of a sailing voyage during the next year's Tall Ships Race. This is done in order to give more young people the opportunity to go sailing.

The application form will be published 01st of January and it is possible to apply from 01st of January - 15th of June.

The Tall Ships Races is an annual event for sail training, in which was implemented for the first time in 1956.

The event is being administrated by Sail Training International (STI) who are based in Portsmouth, England. STI is registered as an ideal organization with members from all over the world.

One of the main goals of STI is to contribute to education and development of young people of all nationalities, religions and social backgrounds, through sail training.

    Flott mulighet, men hvorfor gjelder ikke stipendet dem som er 15-17 år?

    • March 10, 2020 at 9:35 pm

      Hei, og takk for spørsmål!
      Grunnen til at ungdom mellom 15-17 år ikke kan søke på disse stipendene er at stipendiatene reiser på turen uten ledsager, og dermed reiser på eget ansvar. Vitamin Sea Sail ønsker ikke å være juridisk ansvarlig for ungdommene som reiser, og dermed kreves det at de som søker på stipendene må være myndige, altså minimum 18 år.

      Om ungdom mellom 15-17 år likevel har lyst å delta på Tall Ships Races, samt søke om et delstipend, så finnes det mer info om dette på linken under:

      Håper dette hjelper!
