300 young sailors conquered the sea

Via the LEADER transnational cooperation project Sailing Training and Maritim Heritage, almost 300 young sailors, pupils of Hiiumaa schools, got the chance to practice actual traditional sailing on board the sailing ship Kajsamoor .

Heli Tuisk, teacher and the member of the Board of Hiiumaa LEADER LAG, said: We got it all - wind and water and waves! Children did what Captain said, even raised sails!

The sailing took place between two Hiiumaa harbours, Suuresadama and Lehtma during two days, 24-25 of May 2011.

The partners of the project are LAGs Karhuseutu from Finland, Hiiumaa from Estonia, Nord West Zealand and Bornholm from Denmark.
