    The Advanced Summer Ambassador Program is for students ages 16-19 who have some sailing experience and want to further develop their seamanship and leadership skills. Students will work closely with our professional crew on board where they will have the opportunity to level up their technical skills. Like the Summer Ambassador Program, up to 18 students plus a full crew will sail along the New England coastline from August 15-22, 2024.

    Under the supervision of professional crew, students work their way up to continuous, 24/7 sailing of the ship. By operating in three watch rotations, students and crew can ensure that the ship is always underway by sail, whether by day or in the middle of the night. The ship will travel along the New England coastline as students expand their perspective of the world, build new skills, step outside of their comfort zones, and make new friends – all within a supportive learning community. Students will work with crew to build off of their prior sailing skills. No matter if that prior experience was on small dinghies or larger tall ships, there's much more about ship operations for everyone to learn! This is an excellent opportunity to delve deeper into marine science, engineering, and maritime history. During their expedition, students will learn and practice seamanship and navigation as they operate and maintain the 137-foot schooner that is their home. They will also carry out lessons in maritime history, community-building and ethics. .

    Not only do students become ocean scientists and tall ship sailors while on board, they learn transformational life skills including resilience, self-reliance, teamwork, and courage. Modern technology is limited as students use traditional techniques to navigate and cell phones are not allowed. Many parents have shared that their children's lives have been fundamentally changed as a result of our programs.
