Sail training is about living, working and playing with people you haven’t met before; about becoming a member of a team, about taking responsibility, giving and taking orders, pushing yourself physically and mentally. Being cold, wet, weary, perhaps sick, often frightened - and looking back on it as the most wonderful experience of your life.
— Captain Geoff Rowarth, New Zealand Sail Training Association
Young trainees who participate in off-shore sail training programmes show measurable improvements in social confidence and their ability to work with others ... and the benefits are sustained over time after the voyage experience.
— "The Characteristics and Value of the Sail Training Experience", commissioned by Sail Training International in 2007
