Sail With Us - Brigs

Sail With Us!

Brigs' purpose is to deliver challenging adventure leadership programs on board our tall ships for youth aged 13 - 18, regardless of financial background.

Brigs is a registered charity dedicated to reducing financial barriers to adventure and personal development experiences for young people. All youth voyage fees are subsidized by 50% by fundraising, and financial assistance is available to any youth to cover part or all of the remaining fee on a needs-based basis.

Brigs also offers opportunities in the spring and fall for groups, and adults 18+, to get out on the water and experience life on a tall ship.

Living and sailing on a tall ship is mentally and physically demanding. Please read the eligibility criteria and don't hesitate to contact Brigs with questions.


Summer Voyages - July and August

Summer voyages are the core of the Brigs program.

Every summer the TS Playfair and her crew travel through the Great Lakes.

Youth 13-18 can join our crew for one of our 1-2 week long voyages to get the full experience of living and sailing on a tall ship.
