As trainees in our summer program, teenagers as young as 12 and up to age 19, have created memories of a life time sailing the tall ships around the Great Lakes and Georgian Bay. Over 20,000 teenagers have gone through the program in the almost 50 years since we were founded … and over 150 new trainees just sailed this past summer.
Trainees in the program create lifelong memories and make new friends while learning to sail and developing important life skills around leadership, teamwork — all while having great fun and an experience of a lifetime.
There are alumni out there from our first programs in the 1960s that are still in touch with friends from their sailing days with Toronto Brigantine. Michael McGrath shared some pictures from his adventures in 1966. Sean O’Donnaghue was a Deep Sea Award winner in 1986 and Steve Dennis was a Deep Sea Award winner in 1992.
For all you TBI alumni out there. come join us on Facebook and share your memories, pictures and experiences. And get reconnected with old friends.
As we prepare for our 50th anniversary celebrations, we want to collect as many stories we can from our 20,000 alumni that are spread out around the world now.
We look forward to hearing your stories – here – at the Toronto Brigantine website – or joing us on Facebook.
