Welcome to the Website of the American Schooner Association

Our Mission Schooner Adventure

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.

Overview

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).
