Private Traditional Sailing Charter


Have ever dreamed of commanding a wooden tall ship?  Here is your chance!

New for 2013, Maritime Heritage Alliance is offering 19th Century, Traditional Sailing Lessons on Champion.  This unique opportunity allows small groups to receive private training and command of Champion – a 52′, 1870′s style, gaff-rigged, cutter .  Champion, the gentleman’s tall ship, is registered with Tall Ships America.

Training includes learning all essential parts on board, manipulating all 27 lines to set her 5 sails, and, of course, taking the helm.  Beyond the hands-on training, there is an emphasis on maritime history that is both informative and entertaining.


These courses are offered for groups of up to 6.   Previous sailing experience is required for at least half of the group.

Available as a Fri/Sat/Sun course from June through August.

Available all days September through mid- October.


Arrangements can be made to either sleep aboard or on the hard (we are happy to recommend  lodging options).

Price – $3500 for 3 day experience.
