Favorite Tabor Boy moment
On our way back from Bermuda, we had a new moon, so I could see all the stars, the entire Milky Way, even Andromeda! I didn't have a night watch, so I sometimes stayed up during Charlie watch, and I would lay on deckbox for hours. The Big Dipper was aligned perfectly with the jibstay, and I traced all of my own constellations. My favorite one was a fox close to our zenith.

Lauren,

I'm glad to hear that Cap Jay is proving to be a good captain. I sailed with Cap Glaeser and he was an amazing mariner. Jim Geil and I sailed together when he first came to Tabor, under Cap Glaeser in '85. That was the first set of cruises in the Bahamas for the Caribbean program. I always loved seeing how devoted Jim was to the program.

I'm looking forward to seeing future post of your adventures.

Very best regards,

Jamie

Welcome aboard Lauren and congratulations on becoming the XO! This is obviously a challenging year and I wish you all the best with it. 

I sailed down to Bermuda aboard her for Operation Sail '76 and loved the four years that I aboard her while attending Tabor. I sailed aboard her a few times after as mate too and loved every minute. The program launched my maritime career of sailing aboard tankers and then research ships as chief engineer, and now building ships. I am forever grateful to Cap, the Tabor Boy, and Tabor.

Please post pictures that you may have from the sail to Bermuda.

Again, congratulations!

Jamie Hutton   XO '79
