I'm not really an old student, but I'm always interested in the tabor boy, because my granddad was the captain in the period that the Tabor boy was named "Bestevaer"and was a pilot schooner in Holland. He was the captain in the period before world war 2. During the war the vessel was captured by the German, and the family stories tells us that my granddad did sail on his own the vessel back to Holland after the war...…

My One and Only Tabor Boy Trip

I've been sailing since I was an infant with my family in Marion (I was a day student) on both small boats (Bullseyes and Lasers) and various friends' cruising boats. However, at this point I had neither done any real ocean trips nor had I ever set foot on the Tabor Boy, so I jumped at the opportunity.

The Privilege of Sailing

Those of us who have sailed on the SSV Tabor Boy are, by nearly anyone's measure, "privileged." We were privileged to have been given an opportunity to participate in a unique life changing experience and we took advantage of it. Most of us were also privileged in that we grew up in middle or upper middle class families that could afford to send us…
