SALTS, the Sail and Life Training Society, has been engaging and
challenging youth through sail training since 1974.
Over 1,700 young
people sail aboard our schooners Pacific Swift and Pacific Grace
each year. We sail with school and youth groups each spring and fall.
Individual young people can join our summer program for ten-day voyages
that collectively circumnavigate Vancouver Island. Every few years, we
conduct an offshore voyage to exciting ports around the world.
SALTS is a not-for-profit, Christian organization that welcomes trainees from all faiths and walks of life, and respects the diversity that exists within the ship's company. In all aspects of our programs, emphasis is on creating an environment where young people are esteemed regardless of their beliefs and listened to when they talk.
Register now for Summer 2018 Sails! All summer trips are 10 days and include meals, sail training materials, park fees, and taxes. Trip fees DO NOT include travel to and from the boarding or disembarking location and trainees must make their own travel arrangements.
