The Flagship Niagara League would like to announce that it is currently accepting applicants for its Exploring the Great Lakes program on the historic tall ship, the U.S. Brig NIAGARA. Exploring the Great Lakes is a voyage-based program intended for high school students and recent high school graduates. Space is limited, and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Tuition is $1575 per student, and includes room, board, and all materials for the course.
Students live and study aboard one of the largest tall ships in North America during this three-week course covering topics in seamanship and American History. The Brig NIAGARA is a replica of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s relief flagship from the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812, and is operated as a United States Coast Guard certified Sailing School Vessel (SSV.) While previous sailing experience is not required, students will be expected to help sail the ship (within their level of comfort.)
