Haul the sails and head out on an adventure of a life time!
During this week-long program, participants will learn to sail a traditionally built pinky schooner under the direction of NEA National Heritage Fellow and Master Shipwright, Captain Harold Burnham and his experienced crew. Students will have an opportunity to participate in all areas of shipboard life, from hauling sails to hauling lobster traps. We will spend the week plotting courses to other local coastal communities, learning about sail trim and boat handling, and exploring Cape Ann’s rich maritime heritage. Participants will learn traditional maritime skills like knot tying and net making and learn about the construction of the vessel from its builder and captain. No prior sailing experience required.
