Experience the adventure and challenge of sailing a 61-foot schooner with a group of your family and friends. Visit quiet anchorages and popular tourist destinations along the New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts coasts and islands while learning to sail a classic vessel.
The Brilliant program provides a unique sailing experience by guiding your group through the operation of the vessel while working and living together at sea. Learn the importance of being a good shipmate, teamwork and proper seamanship.
Summer Youth Charters (ages 15 -18)
Up to eight teenagers, plus a group leader, can charter Brilliant for a five-day educational voyage during the summer. Learn how to sail a classic vessel while developing team building skills. Participants haul on the lines, steer the vessel, learn navigation, help in the galley and stand watch.
Under the guidance of professional crew and a Coast Guard licensed captain, students are taught how to handle Brilliant and are then given the responsibility of doing so. The Brilliant program has worked with schools, scouts, yacht clubs and individual charter groups. The summer schedule is limited to youth groups ages 15-18. No previous sailing experience is necessary.
