About Us

It all started in January 2004 when a couple of tall ship sailors gathered in Yokohama to form a group, hoping to build a community among those involved in tall ship-related activities and expand its network. We named it “Salty Friends.”

Our main activities include, but not limited to: publishing a monthly e-magazine, organizing various events (e.g. workshops, boarding tours of visiting tall ships, photo exhibitions, lectures...), and hosting volunteer opportunities to work @ ships / museums / festivals in Kanto+Kansaki regions.

Mission

The mission of Salty Friends is to promote sail training in Japan, and to create an environment that familiarize more people with ships and the sea by fostering such opportunities.
