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, leaning 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.”
We want to hear from you! All summer program applicants are asked to submit a sample of their best or favorite writing. We want to get to know you better and hear your unique voice. A sample can be uploaded below and should be between 150 – 500 words. Samples can range from your best essay for school, an article or reflection, a poem or short story, or something original just for us. Please contact us if you have any questions.
