SCHOOL AT SEA / YOUTH TRAVEL WINDSEEKER 
 
Thalassa participates in international exchanges for young people aged 15-25, organised by Windseeker. 
Youngsters from all over Europe learn to sail on a Tall Ship, make friends and practice their English (English is the language on board).
Manoeuvring, hoisting sails, navigating, climbing masts, but also cooking and cleaning are the responsibilities of the young sailors. Young people as trainees are part of the crew on board and together they are responsible for the ins and outs of sailing on board.
 Youth voyage/youth exchange programme: 
This year another youth voyage will be organised, in France, 11-25 July. The voyage starts in Boulogne and ends in St.Nazaire.

School at sea project 2021/2022:
 
A winter trip with a learning programme on board has also been developed especially for young people, supported by qualified teachers for the School at sea project. Unfortunately there will be no school at sea voyage in 2021, because of Covid's decision not to sail. 
 "Hoisted up and down again, this time not because of the waves, but because of a choice. However, as the director and founder of School at Sea, Monique Touw, says: "School at Sea is all about leadership. Since the return of School at Sea last April, we have been working on a 'COVID-19 proof' School at Sea plan. We have looked at all possibilities to guarantee both the journey and the personal development trajectory in a safe way. Every year we make these considerations in order to run a good and safe year, but this year this space seems to be fully occupied by COVID-19 limitations. We came to this conclusion after extensive consultation with the ship's doctor, the captain, our contacts in various countries and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The School at Sea programme is supported by three main pillars: schoolwork, expeditions ashore and the ship. All three are necessary to organise a successful year. When we go ashore, there is a risk of contamination with COVID-19. In addition, we have no influence on what the local government decides and therefore the activities ashore are compromised. "We do not take any risks with the young people who take part in our programme. In addition, there are expectations among the young people that we are unlikely to be able to live up to because countries will unexpectedly not allow us in". Monique Touw goes on to explain. "From the experience of the beginning of this year we have learned that uncertainty about the future, skipping destinations and being at sea for a long time is very difficult for the group of young people on board. We expect the full commitment of our young people. Every day. Then we also want to be able to meet expectations and offer quality and fun".
This winter we will continue to work as a team on the next School at Sea year for '21-'22. The information days and fundraising training for the 2021/2022 trip are in full swing. You can register in advance!
