Toronto Brigantine Calls Out for All Volunteers

We just had the Blessing of the Fleet. The Crew are busy studying for their final exams to wrap up their school year. The boats are getting ready to set sail for the Summer Program at the end of June. And we have the Redpath Waterfront Festival event the weekend before that.

There are a number of projects that we need to complete before we set sail.
