Apprentice with the Schooner Timberwind!

Are you interested in learning about sailing on a traditionally-rigged tall ship? Do you live in the Belfast area? Are you above 14 years of age? If your answer is yes to these questions, then we welcome you to apply for an apprenticeship aboard the Schooner Timberwind! As a working vessel, we give selected members of the community seamanship training and experience as we sail throughout Penobscot Bay. Our apprenticeships last for 1-2 weeks during which students can expect to gain knowledge and understanding of windjammer handling, navigation, and maintenance. The application process does include completing a written form and an interview (via phone or in person) with the captain and crew.
