In preparation for Hartlepool hosting the Tall Ships in 2023, we are looking for five young people aged 15-25 years old to represent the Borough by taking part in The Tall Ships Races 2022.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to take part in an international event and sail across Europe – no experience is required. We are looking for five Hartlepool participants – from any walk of life – who are willing to work with us by taking part in the race and allowing us to interview them about their experiences.
We will allocate trainees to an English speaking ship taking part in the 2022 race from Antwerp, Belgium to Aalborg, Denmark.

Hartlepool Borough Council will arrange their travel to and from the start and finish and have also organised mentors to take part in the race alongside them.

Location: Belgium to Denmark
Dates: 25 July 2022 – 7 August 2022
Costs and travel: Covered by sponsorship

Complete the nomination form at and email it to by Sunday 8th May
