The Tabor Boy Project

Welcome Aboard!

For over 50 years, the schooner Tabor Boy has taken young Tabor Academy students to sea under sail. This remarkable ship has played a significant role in helping Tabor Academy transform adventurous teenagers into confident young adults.

The Tabor Boy Project is a living history project and social network by and for Tabor Boy sailors and supporters. While it will help create and preserve the rich stories that make up the schooner's history, it will also connect shipmates that have been "lost" for years.

If you have EVER sailed aboard Tabor Boy as a student, crew, parent, guest or Sea Ranger, for an hour, day, week, semester or year(s), please tell your story(s), comment on other's stories, post pictures and videos and invite shipmates to be part of this living history / storytelling archive. It's easy, fun and you can't break it!

Hop aboard and let's tell the Tabor Boy story together!

Shipmates of Tim Manning - Sorry to report that he has passed away. He was 4 years ahead of me at Tabor and was a great influence on my decision to sail on the Tabor Boy with my father. He also took care of my sisters and me, as youngsters, before I went to Tabor and, of course, my father, Cap Glaeser, thought very highly of Tim and his family. Smooth sailing Tim.......See More
