STV Pathfinder

S.T.V. Pathfinder is one of the tall ships I used to sail on as a teenager. My oldest son Jacob, now 15, sailed on her last summer, and after a long hard winter of work, has been promoted to Petty Officer and will be sailing on her (or her sister ship, T.S. Playfair) for much of this summer. My younger son, 13, will be spending eight days on one of the two ships as well.

If you have children in the 13-18 range, I highly recommend the program for character building. Many more pictures of the Brigs at http://www.torontobrigantine.org/
