For the first Sailors’ Series lecture of the season we will welcome the captain and crew of the TABOR BOYCaptain James Geil and his Tabor Academy high school student crew aboard the 100-year-old schooner TABOR BOY headed south as part of the 645-mile Marion to Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race…. and they won their class! 

“Cap” and his student crew will share their training, the thrill of racing, and how they found Bermuda using only the celestial navigation learned at Tabor.
