Fun Fact… It’s a Twofer!

  1. The U.S. Brig Niagara is one of the many vessels in the Tall Ships America fleet which will be hosting National Maritime Sailtraining Scholarship winners this upcoming summer season!
  2. They were also awarded the 2016 Tall Ship’s America Sail Training Program of the Year. You can read all about our award winners at the Annual Conference blog.

The backstory

The Flagship Niagara is one of the most historically authentic tall ships in the United States. She was built as an accurate reproduction of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s victorious flagship from the War of 1812’s Battle of Lake Erie. Niagara currently offers three distinctive educational programs to the public including day sails, individual training and for-credit experiences geared toward high school and college students.

Who sails
