05/17/18 - Contributing to Roseway's Legacy

Eric Walton, Deckhand Educator

One of my favorite parts about yard are the independent projects. These are projects where you have the necessary skills and tools, and are consequently let loose to finish your work by yourself in a timely manner. At the beginning of yard, these were somewhat rare, due to the fa…

Holly Buresh, Deckhand Educator

We've made it over halfway through yard and every day brings along a new learning experience. This is my first time not only working in a shipyard but also working on tallships. At first it was sad to see us tear apart Roseway when we got to Gloucester but I'm extremely excited t…

03/07/18 - A Musical Day

Culebra, Puerto Rico

Kevauna, Eion, Tyler, & Tashani

03/06/18 - Busy Day at Sea


Alewdys, Diego, Kinae, & Saskia

"We woke up this morning to a harmonica and egg shakers and we all wanted to throw our pillows at the musicians. But on the bright side, bacon, pancakes, and even cupcakes were awaiting us in the very near future. After grueling morning chores, we enjoyed that desert-like breakfa…
