In 2010, Toronto Brigantine Inc is proud and excited about being able to participate in the Great Lakes United Tall Ships Challenge 2010. In addition to promoting youth sail training, with the Tall Ships Challenge theme “the Race to Save the Lakes” it also promotes a message of conservation and protection of the worlds largest source of fresh surface water.
