As a chapter of Tall Ships America (also known as the American Sail Training Association) we subscribe to the Guidelines for Educational Programs Under Sail, an historic statement of the basic principles of sail training and education. We expect our crews, our vessels, our students and our educators to abide by these guidelines to the best of their abilities. As a potential student or sailing educator, we welcome your comments on these principles which were published over 20 years ago but are still the best available expression of our core principles. email@example.com
The mission of Tall Ships Portland is to encourage character building of youth through sail training, support education under sail and promote sail training to the public in Maine. This is a Maine-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit and is the first official chapter of Tall Ships America. We provide accredited experiential education for teenagers on board traditional sailing vessels and we organize events to benefit the youth of Maine. Our registered name is Sailing Ships Portland and our EIN is 47-3101784.
