When the tall ships arrive in Halifax Harbour tomorrow, 50 young people from across Nova Scotia will hop aboard for a very big adventure.

The young people are getting the opportunity through the SEASTAR society, an organization that helps different youth groups in Nova Scotia, to learn how to sail.

The experience of working aboard tall ships helps young people boost their self-confidence, a news release from the society said.


Tall Ships Nova Scotia 2009 has chosen SEASTAR to be their charity of choice this year. The SEASTAR society will also receive the proceeds of pancake breakfasts Friday and Saturday morning at Historic Properties.

The young people taking part will each have the opportunity to participate in different legs of the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge.

The Halifax portion of the tall ships festival is running tomorrow through Monday at the Halifax waterfront.
