lily-instructYouth Expeditions

July – September

Cruising the waters around Martha’s Vineyard, our traditional vessel offers teenagers on the Island unique sailing adventures.

With expert guidance, voyagers on our expeditions will learn to work as a team, practicing the cruising skills of planning, provisioning, piloting, navigation, and seamanship. They’ll also be exposed to wooden boat culture and tradition and will gain confidence and compassion from experiencing life at sea.

farm-instituteMabel to Table

July 6-10, August 9-11, August 23-25

Starting July 6, our locally grown initiative will harness the energy of young sailors and the wind to deliver organic vegetables to market. Students will harvest produce from The FARM Institute on Katama Farm and set sail on a fair tide from down harbor in Edgartown to deliver their goods to market at the Tisbury Farmers Market in Vineyard Haven. An adventure into the Island’s heritage, Mabel to Table will explore the past and present of Island agriculture and seafaring, while participants gain skills and confidence to chart their own course into the future.
