Why Sail Training?

Sail training offers participants a fun and exciting way to learn sailing skills while making new friends. Voyaging aboard a traditional sailing ship is an experience unlike any other and requires teamwork, perseverance and a sense of adventure.​​​

On-board you will learn many new skills, from sailing theory and teamwork, to self-discipline, responsibility and even how to steer the ship. A sail training voyage is a great opportunity to meet new people and share in an experience that will last you a lifetime.

The St. Lawrence II program is a traditional sail training program, which means that we use the experience of serving aboard a working sailing ship to assist people to become stronger individuals.
