“I thought the voyage would be easy. Well, not only was it not easy, but it was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I went through more emotions in one day than I think I have in my entire life, and tasks that seemed near impossible to me in the beginning of the trip became second nature by the end of the trip. Rarely do I actually notice myself changing as a person, but I noticed this time and I’m proud of myself.”
Everyone deserves an opportunity to discover their personal strengths, learn new skills, gain physical confidence, find their voice, and be part of a team. There is nothing that can take the place of discovering your own potential through the challenge and joy of accomplishment.
The Tall Ships® experience is this opportunity, and thousands of professional crew and millions of student trainees have been tested and tempered by the challenges of the sea.
Your support makes it possible for us to offer this opportunity to more students, teachers, crew and trainees so they can create their own real-life stories of personal growth, discovery, self-confidence and competency.
There are many ways your donations can support the Tall Ships® experience to change someone’s life forever:
• Nathaniel Bowditch Leadership Society
• Annual Appeal
• Planned Giving
• Crew Development Grants
• Sail Training Scholarships
• Charitable Gifts, Memorials, Legacies
