Specialty Sails

In addition to our regularly-scheduled classic sails, the Appledore tall ships host an array of specialty sails designed around events and activities in the communities we visit. Dress is casual for all sails. Rubber sole shoes are mandatory; no heels, please. All sails are family-friendly unless otherwise noted.

Just wanted to drop a line and let you know the ‘sail away’ on Sunday evening was delightful! We were on the Appledore IV and the crew was wonderful – it was a very pleasant evening! Thanks again.

Great learning experience as usual. All volunteers were outstanding and students loved them. They were also very knowledgeable.
