What fuels my commitment to OHPRI...

It still takes my breath away every time I see the ship and her amazing rig.  I look forward to experiencing sailing to Bermuda on board as I really cannot imagine what that will be like. Here at Sailing Ships Maine, our youth sail training programs provide a steady flow of kids who aspire to sail on the Perry. Sailing Ships Maine was partially founded by the Perry's 2015 visit here and we are just one example of the changes this amazing ship has inspired. It's a huge honor and an incredible learning experience for me to be part of OHPRI.
