S.A.L.T.S. SAIL AND LIFE TRAINING SOCIETY
451 Herald Street
Our office hours are as follows:
Sail training programs for young people aged 13-25 aboard the topsail schooner "Pacific Swift" and the gaff schooner "Pacific Grace." The "Pacific Swift" was built at Expo '86 as a working exhibit and is based on the "Swift" of 1778. The "Pacific Grace" is a replica of the "Robertson II", an original fishing schooner which plied the Grand Banks until 1973. Between 1974 and 1995 the "Robertson II" was used for sail training in the S.A.L.T.S. program. "Pacific Swift" and "Pacific Grace" provide a platform to continue the training of young people and allow the preservation of a valuable link with our maritime past.
