So the schedule and syllabus for this winter’s sail training is ready to go. This is a great opportunity for everyone that stares at pictures of Niagara all over town thinking how much fun it would be to sail and work on that ship. Our goal is to train new volunteers to help us sail the ship during the coming sailing season for both day sails in Erie and in passage. The Niagara volunteers are the only way that a ship like this can be taken care of to the high standard that she is.
The program starts with and orientation to the ship and the museum on either Saturday Jan 8th or Saturday Jan 15th at 0900. The training classes start on Saturday Jan 22nd and run every other week until April 16th. The classes start at 0830 and end at 1230.
Our sail training program won the American Sail Training Association’s “Sail Training Program of the Year” for 2010 and we are lead by Captain Wesley Heerssen who is the American Sail Training Association’s “Sail Trainer of the Year” for 2010.
Come on down and be a part of it.
