The founders of Toronto Brigantine, the Lorriman’s and their friends, were inspired by the movie Windjammer. The Christian Radich sail training program featured in the movie was designed based on the philisophies of Dr Kurt Hahn.
He believed, “There is more in you than you think.”
People who are put in challenging, adventurous outdoor situations gain confident, redefine their own perceptions of their personal possibilities, demonstrate compassion and develop a spirit of camaraderie with their peers.
Dr Hahn’s philosophies, 50 years later, are still relevant to Toronto Brigantine’s sail training program today:
- Self Reliance
And after 50 years of sail training and 20,000 alumni going through the program, it is demonstrated again and again, that the sail training builds character through adventure and provides solid foundation for success.TBI Program based on Dr Kurt Hahn s philosophy pdf
