M.A.S.T. was a cooperation of local governments, youth associations and owners of traditional sailing ships from Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Denmark and Germany. Together they organised free-of-charge international sailing cruises for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. During M.A.S.T. cruises, youngsters between 15 and 25 years old received hands-on sailing skills, next to non-formal education useful for managing their lives.
We are especially proud of the dutiful restoration of four historical wooden sailing yachts which was aided with project funds: S/Y General Zaruski (City of Gdańsk) S/Y Sarpen (Simrishamn Scouts Association), S/Y Brabander (Klaipeda University) and S/Y Røret (Stege, Denmark) and continue serving young people's sailing education in follow-up initiatives.
