Personally, I couldn't care less if they were relegated to dockside, but that wasn't what I suggested.

There should be enough professional and experienced crew aboard to take one in open water, if necessary.

I don't think the requirement needs to be on "Tall Ships", which is essentially undefined anyway. The requirement to have experience should be specific to the design. Sailing a steel hull 20th century designed square rigger would not qualify, in my book, to be applicable to an 18th century replica.
