2023 Morse Alpha Sailing Schedule Map

Coastal & Offshore Maine Sailing School Expeditions

The coast is where all the action and challenge is: commercial traffic, rocks, tides and currents. New England is one of the most difficult areas to sail in the US, notorious for huge tides and thick fog—but the beauty is unbeatable! These expeditions feature long days of lessons, planning, navigation, drills, scenarios and fun. We’ll sail among the islands, ledges, and schooners of Maine’s bold coast, probably encountering fog and other challenges along the way. You’ll also have the opportunity to complete a night travel. The instructors of Morse Alpha Expeditions have sailed to many parts of the world, and we still agree that setting a course for the northeast provides some of the most robust educational experiences and beautiful cruising grounds.
