       We've buttoned up the American Eagle at her berth for the year. Winter 
cover is back on, systems have been attended to, and she's chained, anchored, and secure for whatever comes; all in record time with a smaller than usual crew who returned for the process.

       Anyone who has sailed or signed up and had to cancel qualifies for the 5% discount on future cruises.  We have twenty three trips on the schedule for 2021; five of them are still open for charter now.  We'd be happy to hold a spot for you without deposit until the end of the year!

The dream team for fall layup
25 years of schooner time between them
Tyler, Christa, and Asher

   not all work and no play

       From here, Tyler's engineer on the schooner Roseway out of Boston for a shakedown trip, Christa is winter mate on the Roseway going south, and Asher's working on his license and sailing on the Timberwind in Portland. And I'm helping build a barn at home while being the ship keeper, a crew of one.

                 One should never overlook the food served on our adventures!
                        We have never had a food budget in 34 seasons.

Sailing Along by Dick Loehr

              Sailing at ten knots or so, moving 290,000 pounds through the water, equivalent to about 275 horsepower. Excellent fuel consumption... we only burned ten sticks of firewood for the galley stove to make dinner for an afternoon's travel.
