Favorite Tabor Boy moment
I only went out a few times as a non-crew Nav Sci student interested in sailing, and at the time, Annapolis! I have had a longterm goal to get back out on the Tabor Boy again one day. It is one of the most unique opportunities in the United States in terms of secondary school education, and core to what Tabor is all about.

I was fortunate enough to get aboard for a sail last summer for my 30th reunion. We had a beautiful few hours on Buzzards Bay. I was thinking that you could get out for alumni day in the fall but I just checked the calendar and they don't have the event anymore. I'll keep my eyes open for other events that you could take advantage of. Peter is well connected and can keep you posted as well. In the interim, I’ll give you a heads up the next time I’m in town. I actually work for NOAA in Silver Spring so I’m not far away.

Welcome aboard and thanks for joining!

It's great to reconnect and we look forward to seeing you in Mattapoisett someday soon.

Welcome aboard! I came in just after you left so unfortunately we didn't sail together. However, I share your enthusiasm for Tabor and the TABOR BOY.
By the way, I live not fare from you in Waterford, VA.
Regards, and again welcome,
