Posted by Tall Ships America on December 1, 2008

For the first time ever, the American Sail Training Association and Sail Training International jointly hosted thier annual conference on Sail Training and Education. This was a wonderful event attended by sailors, sail trainers, ship operators, and educators from around the world. More information is available here.

This year’s conference was a collaborative effort between ASTA and STI because of next summer’s joint event, the TALL SHIPS ATLANTIC CHALLENGE®. A 7,000 nautical mile race starting in Vigo, Spain and ending in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the fleet of vessels will visit seven ports in six countries.  The schedule is as follows:

Vigo, Spain:  April 30 – May 3

Tenerife, Canary Islands:  May 14 – 17

Hamilton, Bermuda:  June 12 -15

Charleston, South Carolina:  June 26 – 29

Boston, Massachusetts:  July 8 – 13

Halifax, Nova Scotia:  July 16 – 20

Belfast, Northern Ireland:  August 13 – 16
