Learning the Ropes with Toronto Brigantine

Here is a flier for Toronto Brigantine’s Summer Program. Come Learn the Ropes of tall ship sailing this summer.  TBI Summer Sail Flier

The term “learning the ropes” originated from shipping. As a young lad came aboard he became a deck hand and one of the first things he’d do is climb the ships ropes to handle the sails.  “Learn the ropes” means learning the basic runnings of an operation or job.

Get a look at these ropes from the Pathfinder. Alan Gillis took this picture August 2008.

Try this for “learning the ropes”


And in addition to “learning the ropes”, trainees also get “all tied up in knots”


You, too, can learn the ropes on a tall ship this summer. For more information about our programming, see our website.
