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!

Tabor Boy 100th Anniversary Commemorative Seal

To commemorate the schooner’s 100th Anniversary, Tucker Francis ’16, with the help of Captain James Geil and a couple of other students and crew, created this wonderful 100th Anniversary Seal.  Using Tabor’s school seal as a model, Tucker and his design crew painstakingly came up with an incredibly accurate rendition of our current schooner.  The wording around the outer circles was changed to commemorate the 100th Anniversary, and the beautiful color was added.  The result is a stunning tribute to our beloved schooner and program. 

 

The Anniversary Seal was used on invitations for Tabor Boy anniversary events as she sailed up the coast from the Caribbean in the spring of 2014, as well as for additional receptions in the summer and fall.  The seal…
