Tall Ships 2019


20th Anniversary


April 29-May 3, 2019

Ahoy All!

Tall ship sailing with SALTS has become a tradition at Handsworth and this year we celebrated our 20th voyage.  Over one thousand Handsworth graduates, current students, and alumni have been incredibly fortunate to have participated in this unique and amazing experience!

On this anniversary SALTS cast sail from Victoria and finished the trip in North Vancouver at the LONSDALE QUAY!  This is a first for SALTS to have changed an arrival destination for any High School, and it is a very exciting addition to this inspirational and environmentally educational voyage.

Please contact Mr. Hansen mhansen@sd44.ca if you have any questions.
