More About Sailing Ships Maine:

Sailing Ships Maine (formerly Tall Ships® Maine) is a part of Sailing Ships Portland, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We provide accredited experiential education for teenagers on board tall ships. We believe that the experience of sailing on board a tall ship as part of the crew for a week changes teens' perspectives and helps them develop leadership and teamwork skills. We sent 100 students to sea in 2018 on 7 voyages with 6 partner schools and youth groups and we expect to send more than 200 young men and women to sea in 2019. To support our mission, we organize yearly tall ships events such as the SchoonerFest Regatta and the Sailing Ships Weekend and major events such as 2015's Iberdrola USA Tall Ships Portland.
