Pride of BaltimorePride of Baltimore II was commissioned in 1988 as a sailing memorial to her immediate predecessor, the original Pride of Baltimore, which was tragically sunk by a white squall off Puerto Rico in 1986, taking her captain and three crew members down with her. Both ships were built in the Inner Harbor as reproductions of 1812-era topsail schooners, the type of vessels, called Baltimore Clippers, that helped America win the War of 1812 and finally secure its freedom. Since her commissioning, Pride II has sailed nearly 200,000 miles, and visited over 200 ports in 40 countries in North, South, and Central America, Europe, and Asia.

Our mission is to promote historical maritime education, foster economic development and tourism, and represent the people of Maryland in ports throughout the world.

SorcaSorca was built in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia by Murray Stevens. Four generations of the Stevens family have handcrafted Nova Scotia schooners – from Amos Stevens at the beginning of the century to his great-grandson Murray. The Stevens have earned a reputation of being world-class boat builders and have been described as building boats that have become an extension of themselves.

Originally built in 1978, Sorca (Gaelic word meaning “brightness”) was extensively upgraded at Berthon’s shipyard in the UK and is well proven in both coastal cruising and numerous safe, speedy trans-Atlantic crossings. In 1984 she sailed as a Tall Ship in the trans-Atlantic race from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Liverpool, England. Sorca returns as a Tall Ship vessel under the ownership of Think Sail Inc.

Rona IIRona II, an Oyster 68, is one of three vessels operated by the Rona Sailing Project. Rona II was built in 1991 and since then has become one of the hardest working and most resilient Oyster yachts in the world. She has taken more than 7,200 young people sailing, has completed 21 international and three Transatlantic Tall Ships campaigns, and has sailed more than 250,000nm in her career to date. Rona II is the Rona Sailing Project’s flagship and is central to the operation. With a financial and in-kind assistance alongside many voluntary hours looking after her, Rona is in excellent condition and is expected to continue taking people to sea on life-changing voyages for many years to come.

One of the most unique aspects of the organisation, which is key to its longevity and success is that the organisation is volunteer-based. Apart from the four dedicated full-time staff who oversee the management of the organisation, the RSP depends on more than 300 volunteers to run the voyages, and to maintain and refit the vessels. The richness of the organisation today is found in the diverse backgrounds and skills of the volunteers, ranging from health and maritime professionals to students. Our skippers are all experienced and highly qualified. Most of our volunteer Afterguard joined the project as trainees, and 60% of our 62 skippers joined this way.

Key to the ethos of the organisation is equality of access. We don’t specifically target any one group of young people or adults, and we firmly believe in the value of mixing people of different backgrounds and circumstances, which adds a depth of incomparable expertise, especially for young people but also for vulnerable adults.
