Learn the Ropes is Sail Baltimore’s educational program, providing youth with a unique experience that encourages learning, cultural exchange and understanding. We provide a means for young people to expand their horizons without leaving their own community. They can board visiting ships from around the world for special hands-on tours, providing them the opportunity to interact with crew members from other countries, and learn about maritime technologies, history, geography, career alternatives and more. An activity guide is provided to the children to further educate them about ships, sailing, geography, international cultures and maritime careers. Participants have included youth from the Police Athletic League, Head Start, Sea Cadets, community centers, day camps and schools.
