Spirit needs us. Some of her timbers ring hollow, the inevitable rot every wooden ship undergoes. Though the work will be extensive, a restoration will assure that a new generation will discover the same experience that has served as a foundation for many of our lives.”
~ Capt. JB Smith

Ocean Classroom Vessels Harvey Gamage, Spirit of Massachusetts, Virginia, Westward & Amistad

Spirit of Massachusetts & Westward are both riding out this winter in Portland, Maine awaiting rebuilds. Cost is estimated at $700,000 each. And since we have more students than boats, we're anxious to get them both back to work. Can you help?

We are pleased to report that demand for our programs is growing. We have launched a campaign to raise money to rebuild these beloved vessels. You know it works best when we all work together, and this campaign will require everyone to be on board to make it a success.

Here's how you can donate to help rebuild Spirit & Westward: 1. Call us at 207-563-3266 2. Send a check to Ocean Classroom Foundation at P.O. Box 220, Damariscotta, Maine 04543 or 3. Visit us online and make a secure payment using paypal.

There will be more news about these boats coming soon. We're planning a party with Spirit as the guest of honor this summer. Stay tuned. In the meantime--THANK YOU!
