Sailing a tall ship requires young crews to do real work that is physically, mentally and emotionally challenging. The youth who sail our vessels must pull together as a team to meet the actual, practical demands of the ship. They raise the sails, set the course, work with wind and waves, and climb the rigging standing only on footropes. Through their adventures at sea, youth realize their individual potential and get inspired to learn and achieve. Sailing a classically-rigged vessel is a life changing experience!
