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).
Payment for Annual Meeting Lunches can be made online on the Annual Meeting event page.

When we came in to Jervis Bay I had an idea of long walks on the beach in the evenings, the children off exploring in their kayaks and latte-sipping afternoons of peaceful tranquillity. Hmm, well there have been some of those moments but over the last 7 days I must say I have been surprised with the conditions in what I thought of as a boater’s paradise!
This had been on my shelf for some time, but I just got around to reading it. Here is a review from Chesapeake Bay Magine in 2002. Five stars!
