Experience aboard a tall ship inspires a vision that
transcends into motivation that has the power to overcome ALL barriers.
Tall ships are natural learning environments, that
teach and motivate participants to learn with nature as an instructor.

- Motivating Teenagers
- How Sailing Programs Change Attitudes
- Ocean sailing is an educational opportunity where the curriculum is
controlled by nature. The crew and ship must work in harmony with nature.
When under way, there is the never-ending task of learning how the
interaction of the vessel reacts with fluid dynamics and the atmosphere. The
crew becomes comfortable with cause and effect, as well as persistence,
endurance, patience, and courage; attitudes that are almost impossible to
teach in a classroom.
- The Power of Teams - Team
- The Windjammer program teaches teamwork and the benefits of coaching
versus orders. Not everyone can develop a high level of independence,
but they can achieve powerful results in a team-motivated environment.
