Support to the Ainaži Nautical School

Latvian Shipping company appreciates the contributions of the Ainaži Nautical School into development of the Latvian seafaring. The school was not only a take-off point for the Latvian professional seafaring but also a significant symbol of the Latvian national self-confidence. That was the first nautical school in Latvia – it was established in 1864 and the studies took place in Latvian language. By 1919, around 3000 students from Latvia and Estonia had done studies at the Ainaži Nautical School, out of those, more than 1000 received diplomas for sea captain and deep sea navigator.
 
Today the Ainaži Nautical School Museum is a commemorative establishment  for the first Latvian professional nautical school and its graduates – Latvian and Estonian captains and navigators.
 
Latvian Shipping Company financially supports the Ainaži Nautical School in celebration of its 150 anniversary, by donating 5000 euro.
