A TALL ship dedicated to helping to improve the lives of its voyagers will be making its first appearance in Milford Haven next month.

The Tall Ship Pelican, a beautiful square rigged sailing ship, is due to arrive at Milford Haven on Sunday, June 8, to take part in the Seafair Haven.

The ship will then be offering day sails to the public on June 9 and 10.

Tall Ship Pelican is operated by a charity, Adventure Under Sail, whose mission is to help young people to become more employable and learn life skills by taking them on sailing adventures.

This year Adventure Under Sail and the Tall Ships (Wales) Trust are working together to get young people from west Wales onboard this year and in future.

“We are really excited about attending Seafair Haven for the first time this year,” said Lou Keeling, marketing manager.

“We hope that lots of people take up the opportunity of coming onboard for a day’s sailing with us.

“Passengers will have the chance to steer the ship, help to set the sails and enjoy some lovely food including a bacon roll for breakfast, a heart lunch and afternoon tea and cake.

“It really is an opportunity not to be missed. What’s more, day sails and the adult voyages we offer all help to fund our charity – and no previous sailing experience is necessary”.
