As she sailed home from Cuba, our schooner recently moored with our friends at the Capital Yacht Club and hosted a small town-hall discussion, weaving stories of our winter programs with speculation on the future of American travel to Cuba.
Ready to get your sea legs? Then join us this summer as we partner in Portland with Baxter Academy of Technology and Science to sail our 130-foot schooner Harvey Gamage around the Casco Bay area. Our sails are open to the general public, and no sailing experience is required!
Our deckhand and shipboard photographer, Jocelyn Leighton, will be exhibiting photos from Cuba through May 14 at Coffee By Design. Please read on for Jocelyn's artist statement and to view the photos she is showcasing.
As the Gamage prepares to sail north back to Portland, we just announced exciting plans to partner this summer with Baxter Academy for Technology and Science on a two-week sailing excursion open to all Maine high school students.
Our Cuba voyages under sail are so amazing that it may surprise you that some of the most life-changing adventures occur on land. That’s where we meet Cuban friends who are shaping their country’s future, from culture and the arts to business and the sciences.
While in Cuba studying aboard the Harvey Gamage, our winter term students were able to explore the pristine Gardens of the Queen marine sanctuary with University of Maine oceanographer Bob Steneck.
Discussions about gap year programs, like our voyages to and from Cuba, frequently focus on the young people considering them. But perhaps the best perspective comes from those whose life trajectories were changed by gap years they took long ago.
After a glorious day sailing beside the Bowdoin to kick off three days of international meetings on the Arctic last week in Portland, it was wonderful to hear from Dana Eidsness, the chair of the state-wide host committee.
Here’s the Gamage, alongside the iconic & restored Bowdoin, preparing in Castine, ME for our Oct. 4 sail into Portland to welcome hundreds of international diplomats visiting Portland for high-level meetings of the eight-nation Arctic Council.
We were pleased to participate this past week in Sail Portsmouth. After a successful Parade of Sail with the Oliver Hazard Perry, here’s a nice shot of the Harvey Gamage on a sunset public sail in Portsmouth Harbor.
