Opportunities offered again for youngsters to sail on board many of the Sail Training Vessels during the upcoming season in the Caribbean, Atlantic Crossings and more...

The Caribbean Sail Training Foundation is, in cooperation with the Maritime School of the West Indies, again offering possibilities to the Caribbean youth to sail on the Sail Training Vessels, the so called “Tall Ships” during the upcoming yachting season 2014-2015.

Several sail training vessels are scheduled again to visit the Caribbean Islands, Grenada, Martinique, Anguilla, St.Maarten, St.Martin, the Virgin Islands to name a few, with some arriving in November and December while others will be around in the first months of the new year.

One of the regulars visiting the Caribbean is the Eye of the Wind which will arrive during the third week of December.

Two youngsters are offered the possibility to embark and sail along to the Virgin Islands with the vessel from December 24th until the 30th.
All costs including return by airplane are paid for by the Caribbean Sail Training Foundation and sponsored by the Maritime School of the West Indies.

Several other sailing possibilities, ships and dates will be announced in the next months on the web site www.CaribbeanSailTraining.org

While some of the sailing trips are leaving from One Island to others, or returning to the Island of departure, one or more Transatlantic crossings are also within the possibilities.

Youngsters from the Caribbean who want to participate in one of the voyages should write to info@CaribbeanSailTraining.org with a motivation letter and CV with picture and I.D. copy. ( for some trips a valid passport and even a Visa might be a requirement and some age restrictions will apply )

Several “Maritime Experience Day” day trips on visiting sail training vessels will be held in addition to the week and long term voyages.

For additional information please check out the web site www.CaribbeanSailTraining.org

We will post additional information regarding the sailing trips HERE
