We take kids sailing to help them experience great adventures,
make amazing discoveries (often about themselves),
and become good stewards of Lake Superior.
HELP Us BRING A TALL SHIP
TO LAKE SUPERIOR
We would like to take more kids sailing on Lake Superior and we are not able to do this with the 52’ Abbey Road alone.
There is a 110’ schooner on the East Coast that would fit our needs. We are working to purchase this schooner and will rename her Algonquin, after a schooner that was brought to Lake Superior in 1842.
We are seeking Plank Owners to help purchase the Mystic Whaler, rename her the Algonquin, bring her to Lake Superior, and create a scholarship fund for students. Plank Owners will enjoy special privileges such as invitations to exclusive events, discounts on trips, prominent recognition on the ship and at events, and a signature LSTS Plank Owner Cap.
Help us Build A TALL ship
LSTS started with a dream to build the Alice Craig, a replica of a US Revenue Cutter that sailed Lake Superior from 1859 to 1887.
A Tall Ship Tale details the history of this historic schooner and you'll see why we are enamored with her.
It may be several years before we are in a position to lay her keel, but we'll let you know when its time for you to help us build a tall ship for Lake Superior.
In the mean time, please help us grow by supporting our current programs and initiatives.
