Problem: Too much racing in sailing instruction and not enough seamanship, adventure, and free sailing.

  • Action: Learn Seamanship
    Seamanship is the art of caring for and moving boats. It is an art because the wind and the current are always changing and recombining in new ways.
  • Action: Just Sail.
    Learn your boat. Learn about your boat and all its nuances. It is a beautiful piece of technology. Repair, maintain, love.
  • Action: Sail a Tall Ship
    Aboard our Sail Training Ships are professionals who know their craft so well they can ease off a dock under sail with a crew of college students.  These professionals know seamanship – the care and feeding of a large, complex boat. There are healing powers in the Sea and the boats.
