Corinthian YC Speaker Series: Historic Tall Ships & Educational Sailing Programs

Corinthian Yacht Club and Modern Sailing School and Club together present:

Alan Olson
Captain, Boat Builder, Founder of Call of the Sea, Executive Director of Educational Tall Ships

Charles Hart
Executive Director, Call of the Sea

Please join for this wonderful and inspiring talk about the past, present and future of educational tall ships on San Francisco Bay.  Both Call of the Sea and Educational Tall Ships will be on hand to discuss this small (but growing) sailing niche.

Call of the Sea is an educational nonprofit with the mission of connecting people to the sea and maritime traditions. Their teaching platform is the lovely 82' schooner, SEAWARD.

Call of the Sea’s goal is to offer the benefits of connecting with the sea and sailing to all people, with a special focus on empowering youth of all backgrounds. They have programs ranging from three hours to two weeks long, primarily taking place on San Francisco Bay and during the winter ranging as far as Baja Mexico.

The mission of the Educational Tall Ship is to construct a historic and sustainable wooden tall ship for the San Francisco Bay Area.  The project will provide on the water and shore-based experiential education for students of all ages, both during construction and after completion.  Programs will focus on marine ecology, sustainability, teamwork, leadership and the rich maritime history of the Bay Area.

No host bar opens at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation begins at 7:00 p.m.  Meetup member meet at the upstairs bar at 6:30.

There is no charge however please RSVP at: or call (415)[masked]

    I was pleased to learn how the Call of the Sea takes teenagers out for a few hours of sailing. They get to enjoy some time in the fresh air and sun on our beautiful bay.
