In an era when the Atlantic crossing is measured in hours rather than weeks and most people’s occupations anchor them to a desk, counter, or workbench, Sea Exploring offers a learning-by-doing environment. Lessons of character building and teamwork apply to all facets of one’s life. The Sea Explorer program requires that each trainee exerts and extends him or herself physically, morally, and mentally to perform duties which contribute to the ship. The reward, over and above the experience of a world of beauty and challenge, is the satisfaction and self assurance that contributes to self-dis-cipline. The William H. Albury’s Sea Explorer Program offers lessons in ecology and international cooperation, as well as history, science, literature, and art. Subject to the dictates of nature, the Sea Explorer program is adventuresome while also a developer of character and a molder of lives. The William H. Albury is now in its 30th year of sailing under the command of Captain Joe Maggio and was co-winner of the 1999 ASTA Sail Training Program of the Year Award.
