     We have the schooner as ready as is possible not knowing when we will be permitted to sail. The cabins are checked over, the main cabin top sports three new coats of varnish. Everything on deck and topsides has been fussed over and the North Haven dinghy "Cappy" has a new sail made by Nat Wilson of oceanus sail cloth. Every century-old small boat should have a new sail once a generation! 
     When we get the go ahead from the CDC and the State we'll be sure to let you know. Hope it's soon, as long as it's also safe for everyone.

     So here's the latest revised trip schedule for this season!

It's not all work. This month as part of spring training we had a crew lobsterbake,


with crew d'ouvres for six,

and social-distanced grilling.

         Never say never. With a short season at best this year  we really need to try again so here's our 2021 schedule.  Every cabin is available and we'll hold one for you if you'd like.
