This year, we have not one but TWO professional development grants available to eligible crew.
For the third time, we have teamed up with Maritime Simulation Institute and the USMMA Sailing Foundation to provide a more affordable way for crew to attend our annual conference. For both of the grants, you must be a current member of Tall Ships America (membership information is just a click away).
