Calling all crafters, artists, and creators! It’s no secret that the tall ships are crewed by a talented and resourceful bunch. Generations of sailors have learned and shared their arts, crafts, music, and other creations onboard and in port, and this exchange is inherent in the sail training experience.

The Covid-19/Coronavirus significantly impacts our community as the ships remain stuck at the docks and on hardtops when they should be emerging out of winterization and being uprigged to take people out on the water. Though the crew aren’t sailing now, they are still creating and ready to share their creations to keep earning until they sail again.

If you are an artist, crafter, or creator please post a link and some information about your trade below. For everyone else, please support these talented and resourceful people by checking out the fruits of their creativity below and supporting them directly. Tall Ships America is happy to provide this showcase and promote our members – any and all transactions are directly between you and the sellers.

Calling all Tall Ships America members:

Do you have N95 dust masks in your stores you can donate to health care providers?

Capt. Amy Blumberg of Schooner Argia donated 80 masks to their local hospital and was told by the grateful head nurse they haven't been able to resupply for more than two weeks.

If you have these masks and any other PPE you aren’t going to be using for a while, contact your local Marine Trades Association and/or United Way to coordinate your donation.

Let’s do our part to get/keep America healthy!
