Capacity is 40 passengers. SAIL TRAINING If you and your group are interested in a hands-on cruise, we’re delighted to provide professional instruction. Our experienced and capable crew will teach you to “hand, reef, and steer.” You’ll learn the rudiments of navigation in the same waters where Nathaniel Bowditch got his start. Once you’ve learned a chantey or two and can tie a bowline, a square knot, and a clove hitch, you’ll never look the same way at a sailing vessel again. TEAM BUILDING PROGRAMS Bring your team together for an experience that will both educate and entertain. Aboard Fame, you’ll find that not even the saltiest of old-time sailors can do it all himself. Sailing is all about teamwork — understanding what to do and when to do it, and knowing your role on the smoothly-running team that brings a vessel across the trackless ocean. We offer consultant-led programs, but we can also work with you to design your own day at sea. Your group will learn how to navigate, handle the sails, and steer a course… all through a fun, hands-on curriculum that emphasizes the importance of teamwork and cooperation in any group endeavor. What to Bring Sensible shoes, sunscreen, hats and sunglasses are always a good idea. It’s cooler on the water, so you may want to bring a jacket or sweatshirt.No coolers or BYOB, sorry! Beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks are available for purchase.
