Fun Facts

This summer, Roseway will be running both a Junior Watch Officer and Youth Ambassador programs. Both experiences would be opportune for any National Maritime Sailtraining Scholarship applicants to participate in!

The backstory

The 137ft Roseway was built in 1925 in Essex, MA as a private fishing yacht. She remains one of the last Grand Banks schooners built in Essex and is a registered US National Historic Landmark. Today, she is utilized as a sail training vessel for the World Ocean School which affords students a practical application for their studies as well as cultivating teamwork, community service, environmental responsibility, and cross-cultural friendships so that they gain insight into becoming empowered, motivated and engaged citizens.

Who Sails

Middle school through college students; individuals of all ages.
