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!

My friend Tim

I would also like to add my note of sympathy and assure my lifelong friendship with Tim, who's passing also resulted in my refreshing my long-term friendship with  Tim's sister Dee.When I was a senior at Tabor in 1962, Tim and I charted a little schooner over the summer to do Buzzards Bay and hopefully hit Provincetown. Or the one leg of our voyage Dee and her college roommate, she was a freshman in college then, came along and we had an absolutely wonderful week being very bad people. I should…See More

My friend Tim

I would also like to add my note of sympathy and assure my lifelong friendship with Tim, who's passing also resulted in my refreshing my long-term friendship with  Tim's sister Dee.

When I was a senior at Tabor in 1962, Tim and I charted a little schooner over the summer to do Buzzards Bay and hopefully hit Provincetown. Or the one leg of our voyage Dee and her college roommate, she was a freshman in college then, came along and we had an absolutely wonderful week being very bad people. I should clarified, none of that resulted in any real fooling around, after all they were college girls and we were just high school seniors.

It was a wonderful trip, part of my lifelong friendship with Tim.  after Tim's funeral, my wife and I made the track to Dee's family orchard in Vermont, we stayed a few days, and toured their very extensive apple orchard farm.  Bro Russell class of 62
