SALTS Sail Training
Each year, over 1700 young people from all walks of life learn to sail a tall ship with SALTS! We provide "training, by the sea, for life".
Looking for the ultimate field trip? Through the spring and fall, school and youth groups participate in four or five-day voyages to the Gulf Islands aboard the historic tall ships Pacific Swift or Pacific Grace.
What could be better than spending your spring break or summer vacation exploring the beautiful BC coast aboard a traditional tall ship? SALTS has been challenging young people with sail training programs since 1974, and offers spring break and summer voyages aboard the Pacific Swift and Pacific Grace. The nine and ten-day summer voyages collectively circumnavigate Vancouver Island. The 5-day spring break voyage features sailing in and around the Gulf Islands. Formal sailing instruction is provided, and no previous experience is necessary.
Every few years, SALTS launches an offshore voyage for youth age 17 - 25 with destinations such as the South Pacific, the Far East, Australia, or Europe.
Bursaries are available to those who cannot afford the full cost of SALTS programs.
