Bursary Opportunities for Young Sailors at Tall Ships Adventure

Tall Ships Adventure

Jan 28, 2021

At Tall Ships Adventure, we firmly believe that all youth are wanting to unlock their potential, that’s why we provide youth ages 12-18 with a challenging and engaging environment that teaches responsibility, self-reliance, and courage through tall ship sailing. We recognize that not all families have the financial means to spend the summer sailing. We strive to ensure that no youth are left ashore for want of funds, and this is why we have established the Captain Thomas and Jeanne Fuller Bursary Fund. It is awarded yearly to youth who would otherwise not have the opportunity to sail with us.

Applications for the first wave of bursaries are accepted until February 15th. If you’ve ever wanted to learn to sail a tall ship, make a boatload of new friends, and have the summer adventure of a lifetime sailing along the Ottawa River or the 1,000 Islands and Lake Ontario, then please visit the Bursaries and Scholarship page on our website and apply today! Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or are stepping aboard a ship for the first time, all are welcome.

This summer, we’re offering a variety of adventures from July to August, ranging from 5-day day adventures to 14-day overnight voyages. To see dates for specific adventures, you can visit the Find Your Adventure page on our website and register.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
