Abbey Road

Appledore was built in 1992, is 65 feet long and flies a US flag

Appledore V is a lovely, steel-hulled topsail schooner launched in 1992. She is owned and operated by BaySail, a non-profit educational organization in Bay City, Michigan, on Lake Huron’s Saginaw Bay, a port with a long history in ships and sailing ships in particular. (below, she enters Duluth harbor for Tall Ships 2016 on Thursday, August 18, 2016)
Her summer months sail training program, “Windward Bound”, engages six youth trainees in every aspect of running the ship, from navigation and helmsmanship, to sail handling, galley duty, even manning the oars in Appledore’s tender when they go ashore. Her usual sailing waters are in the Great Lakes, from Lake Huron’s North Channel, to Mackinac Island, and up to Sault Sainte Marie and Lake Superior.
