FREE Tall Ship Sail Training Workshops for All Ages

Toronto Brigantine offers FREE workshops on martime heritage and learning about sailing a tall ships.  These are offered based on the availability of the many TBI Alumni and volunteers that make themselves available for these activities.  They are spread out across Canada.
These workshops can help Guides or Scouts earn their badges or fit in with the school curriculum related to Geography, Science, Environment, Health, History or special interest topics that can excite children and teens alike on new topics.
FREE Tall Ship Sail Training workshops

For teenagers (For Middle and Secondary Schools or Guiding’s Pathfiners and Rangers and Scouts Venturers), we provide FREE sessions to introduce groups to the leadership development opportunities through youth sail training and non-traditional career opportunities in the Marine Industry.

For children’s groups (for elementary school groups or Guide’s Brownies and Guide Units or Scouts Cubs Groups), we also offer FREE workshops to introduce your unit to Toronto Brigantine and youth sail training and provide an activity towards school curriculum or Guides/Scouts badges and programming. These are great for School Break programming.

Select from among the following group activities:
Basic knot tying used on a tall ship,
Basics in traditional navigation (can include use of compass and basic map reading),
Sea Shanties use for work and play,
Sailing terminology reviewing the types of tall ships and the different sails and other boat parts. A great memory activity!
Our alumni and volunteers welcome the opportunity to come to facilitate a session with your groups – young and young at heart.

  1. Can you help us? We are trying to trace a fantastic LP of sea shanties recorded on a Canadian tall ship in the 1980s (at least that’s when we came across it). It was called something like “Salt Sea Shanties” and was mostly unaccompanied singing but with the noises of ropes being hauled, creaking timbers etc. I think it was recorded on a training ship. Anyone with information is welcome to send me a message from my website Many thanks. gill and pete, New Zealand.
