Sisters Under Sail
Posted by Tall Ships America on April 6, 2012
I first met Dawn and the Sisters Under Sail program way back in the Great Lakes in 2006 when Unicorn was part of the fleet and I was just getting my bearings in the tall ship community. Since then, Sisters Under Sail has grown into a bastion of girl-power amongst a primarily male community. It is always a pleasure to have them as part of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) fleet and this year I am so excited to work with them, especially after hearing about Dawn’s latest program. Girls aged 13-18 with parents who are currently deployed with the U.S. military have been invited to sail aboard Tall Ship Unicorn this summer for six days.

This year, Unicorn has a new captain and a new crew including our very own Libby Drew (Hey Libby!), 2010 summer intern. It’s always great to see our summer interns still in the tall ship family!
Unicorn will be part of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE(r) fleet in Greenport, Newport and Halifax. See you soon, girls!
