About the Organization
In 1990 a small group of friends to purchased replica of an 18th century Chesapeake Bay sharpie schooner. The 80 foot vessel was refit with education stations on the deck and rechristened “SoundWaters.” The ship, with its six person crew, immediately made an impact as the “floating classroom of Long Island Sound,” sailing with classrooms of students from its home port of Stamford as well as traveling to Old Saybrook, Bridgeport and Greenwich, CT and Mamaroneck, Port Washington, Port Jefferson and Greenport, NY. Sailing from April through October, SoundWaters, introduced 6,000 young people annually to the world of navigation and the science of conservation.
