The object of the Association is to foster, promote and encourage the enjoyment, traditions, and preservation of schooners by supporting individuals and organizations that are in sympathy with our object, by maintaining a record of these vessels past and present, and by coordinating a program of racing and cruising.
The American Schooner Association, founded in 1972, is a national organization whose members are owners of schooners, sailors and other individuals and organizations interested in preserving and promoting the virtues of the schooner rig. Membership is granted to all applicants in sympathy with the purposes of the Association. The Association produces a Newsletter titled Wing & Wing for all members and holds its annual meeting at Mystic Seaport, in Mystic, Connecticut, usually around the first week in February. Our membership is actively engaged in building, restoring and sailing these wonderful vessels. We encourage all individuals with similar interests to join us and help us grow (click here to join by mail or use our secure online payment system).
For some time I have wanted to write to you and tell you that I have made two passages on the Grey Gull II designed by you.
Check out ASA members Brett and Max Ramsey's house on the move from winter quarters. Now, when you are eastbound on Rt. 128 it is the first house on the right in Gloucester. It is also headquarters for the Gloucester Schooner Festival high speed intercept hospitality boat.
Attention midatlantic Schoonerbums! Saturday the 18th of May is the third annual Elf Classic Race. Goes from Annapolis to St. Michaels Maritime Museum. Should be lots of classic boats involved, including a schooner or two. Its a great event and a great party in the afternoon. Be there or be square! (When was the last time you heard that?)
Wendemeen is hauled out at Royal River in Yarmouth ME. A rare sight to see her underwater lines, if anyone is passing by its worth a stop. As Alden's 1st Schooner, she is certainly stunning. Would post photos if I could.
I heard from a generally very reliable source that Revenge may be on the market (See Revenge under Schooner page). Adam Henley apparently still has her and was undertaking a major structural re-build of the vessel but may have come to a point where he has decided to pass the project along. Please contact me if you would like me to figure out how to get a hold
