What could be better than spending summer days exploring the beautiful BC coast while learning to sail a traditional tall ship? Our ten-day summer trips collectively circumnavigate Vancouver Island. Programs open to ages 13-25 year olds with short day sails open to all ages. Our ships are the 34 metre (111 ft) topsail schooner Pacific Swift & the 42 m (138 ft) gaff rigged schooner Pacific Grace. Formal sailing instruction is provided, & no previous experience is necessary. Trips ashore & rousing mug-ups round out this life changing experience! Four or Five day Group Programs run in the spring and fall (generally school groups).
