Sailing

Come sailing in the Bay of Islands! Regardless of age or ability the R.Tucker Thompson has created memories and friends for thousands of travelers. Our tourism sailings run from November until Easter, providing the chance for visitors to experience a working tall ship.

Youth voyages

The R.Tucker Thompson Sail Training Trust runs life changing adventures for young people aged between 13 and 18. Our flagship 7-day youth development voyages provide an opportunity to build confidence, learn about teamwork and develop leadership skills.

Trust

The R. Tucker Thompson is operated by a not-for-profit trust which is a registered charity. All income derived from our tourism sailing activities are used for her maintenance, as well as providing a contribution to help Northland youth access the sail training voyages.
