Far East, Australia, and Europe. People of all ages can participate in Day Sails by registering online.

Our mission is to encourage the spiritual, relational, and physical development of young people through sail training, shipboard life, and associated activities in a Christian environment. We welcome young people (age 13-25) from all walks of life as participants in our programs.
