An Honor to Fly

Our stern flag has been flown proudly to and from Maine to Cuba, but, after years of continual use, it's time we retire it. Captain Gus Karlsen, who spent an evening sailing with us this summer, generously donated a new US flag to the ship from Annin Flagmakers, the oldest and largest US flag manufacturer in the world.

At the Propeller Club of Portland, Maine's monthly meeting, the flag was presented from Captain Karlsen and Tall Ships Portland to Gamage's owner, Captain Phin Sprague, as a thank you for helping to send over 75 Maine teenagers to sea this year.

Thank you, Captain Karlsen (L) and Captain Sprague (R). We are able to continue sail training with the next generation of maritime workers because of people like you!
