Teen Summer Voyages '18 

In Summer 2018, SSV Oliver Hazard Perry will offer two voyages along the Eastern Seaboard.

Aboard Oliver Hazard Perry the focus is on learning 'from sailing' rather than learning 'to sail.' Each individual participates to the best of their ability within the rotating watch system and the efforts of every member of the ship's company are vital to the voyage. No one is a passenger: everyone works together to help make the voyage a success. No prior experience is necessary; no extraordinary fitness is required.
