Schooners Unite!

We are about to embark on the 28th Annual Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race.  Track our progress live in the race today!

Awaiting the Race

We’re currently docked at the Baltimore Marine Center in Canton excitedly awaiting The Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race start this upcoming Thursday.

Wavertree

Our students spent yesterday exploring a few museums in New York City, such as the South Street Seaport Museum.

Navigating Hell Gate

We rose early and were underway by 0700 to pass through Hell Gate at slack tide.  Hell Gate is a narrow tidal straight in the East River with a strong current, so it was important to time the passage just right.

Hobie Cats and Quests

Carlos from Rocking the Boat picked up students and crew aboard the Harvey Gamage to go small boat sailing.

Sailing with SUNY Cadets

At SUNY Maritime College, we welcomed 11 cadets aboard for an overnight sail to Oyster Bay on Long Island.

Rocking the Boat

The Harvey Gamage crew invited 25 students and staff from Rocking the Boat to come aboard the ship for an evening sail.

Hauling a Yard

Our students and crew spent yesterday touring the Mystic Seaport Museum.  They learned about shipping and ship figureheads, and they were also able to explore the Charles W. Morgan and the Cuban refugee boat Analuisa.

Viking Ship Draken

After navigating the Mystic River, our students and crew had the chance to tour Draken Harald Hårfagre, the world’s largest Viking ship.
