Sail Training with SALTS
“Training young people, by the sea, for life”.
The Sail and Life Training Society (SALTS) was founded in 1974 and is a registered charity in both Canada and the United States. The Society operates two tall ships, the Pacific Swift and Pacific Grace, and offers sail training to young people ages 13-25 (as well as Day Sails for all ages). These ships are maintained at the SALTS Marina at 451 Herald Street, Victoria BC.
Each year, approximately 1700 young people have the life changing experience of learning to sail a tall ship with SALTS. Trainees from all walks of life are welcomed, respected and cared for regardless of their personal beliefs. Voyages take them to the Gulf Islands of BC each spring and fall, and in the summer the ships circumnavigate Vancouver Island and travel up the West Coast of British Columbia to places like Haida Gwaii, Desolation Sound, Princess Louisa Inlet and the Great Bear Rainforest.
Young people from all socio-economic backgrounds participate, and a bursary program covers costs for those who require financial assistance. SALTS partners with other youth-focused organizations to provide bursaries to youth who are at-risk, from low income households, or from challenging life situations.
