Schooner Harvey Gamage has been educating youth at sea under sail for almost half a century. In 2019, she has taken more than 200 teenagers out for 5 day voyages in the Gulf of Maine. In 2018, she took 100 teenagers out on sail training voyages in the Florida Keys and the Gulf of Maine. Prior to that she did sail training up and down the East Coast and the Caribbean. Here is a treasure trove of pictures of the Gamage and here are some sail training videos shot on Gamage.

The ship is now owned by Phineas Sprague and operated by Ocean Passages and home ported in Portland, ME at Portland Yacht Services. Sailing Ships Maine works closely with Harvey Gamage and her crew to provide students and accredited programs. To bring your youth group on board for a 4 night, 5 day voyage, write to us at
