In 2016, the nonprofit Sailing Ships Portland was declared the first official chapter of Tall Ships America and renamed Tall Ships Portland. We continue the mission of Tall Ships America on a regional level and we strive to create a model that will be replicated in seaside communities across the U.S. 

We work with schools, camps, ships and individuals to allow our young people the opportunity to see land from sea as Mainers have for generations via ships with clouds of sail. In this way, we help sustain the excellent and far-reaching educational programs that already exist, while constantly searching for young adults who would truly benefit from ocean voyages.

As a membership organization, we invite all to join our organization and help steer a course toward a future where every young adult from Maine gets the chance to sail on a tall ship. Click here to become a member.
