Terry Moore, the Waterfront and Seamanship Director at the Apprenticeshop, will talk about his experience as the captain of a replica Viking ship that retraced Leif Erikson's voyage of discovery to the New World.
This lecture is free and open to the public with a suggested donation of $10 to help fund future events at the Apprenticeshop.
Celebrate all of our programs with the launch of the Mackinaw. It is a true representation of the things we value at the shop - craft, community, and seamanship. Food, libations, and festivities begin at 5pm. The boat will launch at the 6pm high tide. Join us at the Apprenticeshop waterfront!
This will be a team race which involves not only skill but significant strategy. Our high school sailors will race 420s with 3 boats per team competing in matches with one other 3 boat team at a time. We will use 15 boats which allows 5 teams or ‘ colors’ for approximately 45-50 sailors and alternates. We will run as many races as time and weather allow.
John England, who has worked in the boatbuilding industry for over 40 years, will share his experiences restoring the Elizabeth II, a replica of the barque used for Walter Raleigh's expedition to North Carolina in 1584.
This lecture is free and open to the public, however a suggested donation of $10 would happily be accepted at the door in support of future lectures and workshops.

It is time to go sailing and the upcoming Crew Match Party is just the place to find a boat, or find crew, if you have a boat and want helpers along. This free, festive gathering is designed to introduce boatowners to potential sailors, and want-to-be sailors to potential boats for the summer. Some of the boatowners are looking crew for the Rockland Yacht Club’s weekly Tuesday night races, but some others will be looking for weekend racing crew, or just weekend crews for day sails. And there may be others looking for crew for longer trips. You just never know what will happen at a crew match party, some come join the fun June 17. If you have questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
