Ships 2 Shores

The Pathfinder Access fund is partially funded by the Government of Canada through the Ships2 Shores Sailing Access Fund. The Sailing Access Fund allows youth who would otherwise not be able to participate to experience the adventure and wonder of sailing  by covering some or all fees associated with participation in sail training programs. Ships2Shores promotes diversity and inclusion aboard participating vessels and encourages all eligible youth to apply, regardless of ability, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.
