ABOUT OUR CHAPTER
In 2016, the nonprofit Sailing Ships Portland was declared the first official chapter of Tall Ships America and renamed Tall Ships Portland. We work on the same mission as Tall Ships America on a regional level and we strive to create a model that can be replicated in seaside communities across the U.S. In 2018, we will begin rebranding as Tall Ships Maine while using Tall Ships Portland as an event name.
Tall Ships Maine works with schools, camps, ships, professional sailors and educators to help our young people see land from sea as Mainers have for generations via ships with clouds of sail. We help to sustain the excellent sea-based educational programs that already exist while finding young adults who benefit from ocean voyages.
We invite you to join our organization and help steer toward a future where every young adult from Maine gets the chance to sail on a tall ship. Click here to become a member.
