So I wonder how many people have gone from Tabor Acedemy and Tabor Boy to Maine Maritime or other Maritime Academies. After listening to this podcast I know of three at MMA, myself ’00, Matt Phelan ’96 and Bob Glover. I know of a couple guys who went to Mass Maritime, Mike Close ’99 and Mike Maher, at least one who went to CMA, Ben Hemple ’95, one at USMMA, John Phelan ’01.
Another note to anyone interested, I was one of the first to go through the Sail Training concentration at Maine Maritime and loved it. I can’t even imagine how much better the classes are now after having a few years to improve on them. I ended up taking the first version of a lot of them. If someone wants a career in Tall Ships and a college degree it’s a perfect match.
