It’s the perfect weekend to be down by the water! Come see the youth Officers and Trainees of Toronto Brigantine work on the boats this weekend. The ships, Playfair and Pathfinder, are at West Marina Quay on the Waterfront just beside the Music Garden between Bathurst and Spadina.

The youth in the TBI program volunteer over 10,000 hours over the winter months on these boats. This winter they are working on building a new mast for the tall ship, among other wood working projects. The schedules vary, but when the kids work on the weekends, they do gather at noon since volunteers bring lunch for them each day during the school breaks and weekends. Come meet the kids and volunteers and get a feel for what it takes to sail and maintain a traditional tall ship!

These ships are being prepared for a summer of sailing across the Great Lakes and Georgian Bay. SAILORS WANTED for youth ages 13 to 18 –
