Exploration & Adventure In New England: The Wooden Boat School

August 16th – 24th, 2019

$1,489 for room, tuition, travel during the program and meals

This coming August, Thomas More College in honored to partner with The Wooden Boat School to offer a unique experience of maritime culture in New England.

This course will combine reading stories about the sea, learning to sing sea shanty’s, and –best of all– mastering the elements of sailing off the coast of beautiful Maine.

As the Wooden Boat School attests, the program “will get you onto the water quickly, safely, and fully prepared. Under the calm and knowing guidance of seasoned instructors, you’ll learn the essentials – sailing dynamics, boat rigging and spars, and safety precautions – followed by practical lessons on sailing techniques. Daily hands-on exercises and drills will take students through getting underway, maneuvering to a mooring and dock, and much much more.”
