Semi-private accommodations aboard the ship would make any airline passenger green with envy. In addition to the 6 crew members, up to 34 students and teachers can voyage overnight on board. A place to stow your gear, a small light and a warm bunk give those off watch a place to lay their heads and recoup from a day of sailing and learning.
The Brigantine's saloon will act as the center of activity for those on watch or on deck. Two long tables serve as a gathering area. Navigation equipment and regenerative power instrumentation offer real-time lessons.
A brigantine, as a square-rigged ship, allows for the thrill of going aloft. It is an empowering experience for children and adults. Tending sails high above the water, "one hand for the ship and one hand for the sailor" becomes a real need and life lesson, not just a cliche.
The new Tall Ship will be built to the US Coast Guard and ABS standards, and will be load-lined and licensed to carry passengers on San Francisco Bay, along the West Coast and on open ocean voyages. The new Tall Ship will join schooner Seaward (left) in Call of the Sea's Coast Guard certified fleet.
With deck space for 80 people, the tall ship has room for educators and students to comfortably participate in lessons and labs, while exploring the marine ecosystems of the world.
