You've read about it, dreamed about it ...

Try Living History Aboard a New England Windjammer! Why travel on choked highways, stay in musty motels, and go to crowded beaches to look longingly at distant sails on the horizon, when you can join a seafaring crew aboard a traditional New England schooner for about the same cost? Come to sea for a vacation you'll never, ever forget!

Setting the topsail aboard the Har vey Gamage.

J

The windjammer fleet sails for fun and adventure along the New England coast. Good food, good companionship, and as much sailorizing as you can digest are the order of the day aboard these tall traditional schooners. Some are historic in their own right, having been rebuilt from fishing and trading vessels. Others, like our own schooner Harvey Gamage are patterned on historic types-they are "another in the series," keeping a proud seafaring tradition alive. We invite you to inquire about your vacationing aboard the Harvey Gamage. She also offers, in March and September, a fully accredited "Semester at Sea" in oceanography, ichthyology, navigation and seamanship, ornithology or maritime history. And on the Gamage, you can bring the kids (except on Sea Semester Cruises). In fact, youngsters small enough to sleep two to a bunk can ship aboard with you for the price of a grownup' s place. If you would like to do more than read and ·dream , or watch the tall ships pass on the horizon, now is the time to take the first step. Let us hear from you, and we'll send· you full information. Your early order will assure you a berth in one of the Carnage's fine cabins, a place at her generous table, and sharing in a life where we make our own entertainment instead of watching it come out of a box. One word of advice: young and old share in shipboard life, and there are feasts and frolics ashore and afloat. But ship' s discipline rules in all things, and finally that may be the most memorable thing you'll come to share.
