Sail Training International sponsors South Africa

Thanks to an initiative from Sail Training International as well as considerable funding, four young South Africans have been invited to participate in the Tall Ships' Races (Baltic) 2007. This is one of a series of projects originated by STI to accelerate the growth of Sail Training for young people in parts of the world where the activity is in its infancy. The four young South Africans will join young people from eight European countries in the Cultural Exchange programme on boarrd the barque Europa, organised by AT Sea Sail Taining with support from the European Union. This July they will be sailing from Kotka (Finland) to Stockholm (Sweden) and further to Szczecin (Poland).

Complementary sponsorship for this is needed.
