Sail Training International is proud to continue to support organisations (preferably non-profit) to help deliver youth sail training programmes. Sail Training International has set aside $25,000CAN to be awarded in grants to successful applicants. The Canada Legacy fund will look to support organisation’s sail training programmes that look to reach disadvantaged young Canadians aged between 14-25 years, to help with one or more of the following:
- Improve trainees personal, social and/or educational development
- Enhance international friendship and understanding
- Demonstrate replicable models of innovation and good practice in sail training
Following the success of the RDV 2017 Tall Ships Regatta, the Canada Legacy Fund has been set up with a generous donation from Rendez-Vous Naval de Quebec. The Canadian Legacy Fund is under the management of the Sail Training International Trustees, and is administered by the Legacy Fund Committee. The Legacy Fund Committee is made up of two Sail Training International Trustees, one representative of Rendez-Vous Naval de Quebec and advised by a representative of Tall Ships Canada Association.
