Captain William Sabatini will give a presentation on the US Brig Niagara and the Schooner Lettie G. Howard, especially about a remarkable co-op opportunity aboard the Lettie for this summer. The Lettie will stop in Castine on her way north around Graduation time and take up to 12 MMA students on as trainees for the rest of the voyage to Erie, Pennsylvania.
No prior sailing or vessel experience necessary.
Each fall, first-year students gather at the stern of TS State of Maine for an official “jump” into their life as a Mariner. Join us as we watch President Brennan and the #ClassOf2023 take the plunge!
This tradition can be viewed live at the MMA Waterfront or via our streaming page: mainemaritime.edu/streaming.
