The schooner Harvey Gamage has been educating youth at sea under sail for almost half a century. The ship is now owned by Phineas Sprague and operated by Ocean Passages and home ported in Portland, ME at Portland Yacht Services. In February of 2018, she took 24 Maine students on a sail training voyage in the Florida Keys. Prior to that, since her major refit in 2016, she has done sail training in Cuba and up and down the East Coast. She is scheduled to sail in Portland SchoonerFest & Regatta again in June 2018 and then on to Boothbay Windjammer Days.
