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!

Major transitions at Tabor

Major transitions at Tabor.  

i’ve been following some of the major changes at Tabor, they are in the middle of a search for a new head of school, and apparently Captain Gail has retired, and the boat sits  with no captain and apparently right now no mission or direction while  the Covid virus is throwing the entire school into frantic efforts to assure student safety in the coming school year.

do any of us know what’s going on with the boat? Do we have any recent readings from the director of athletics or the director of the Maritime programs who would give us a hint on what is going on with the Tabor Boy.  

Right now I’m not getting much feedback from the few contacts I have, but this is a really trying a difficult time for the whole school. Bro Russell class of 62Former navigator
