SEA alumnus donates custom tall ship teaching model

Capt. Chris Nolan

SEA Semester

Captain Shawn Deweese, of South Yarmouth, MA, recently donated a custom crafted teaching model to Sea Education Association. The working model is designed to demonstrate the function of all nine sails and rigging aboard SEA’s two tall ships, SSV Corwith Cramer and SSV Robert C. Seamans.

“I was an alum of the high school program in 1996, so it was really great when I got the chance to sail aboard Cramer twenty years later as a guest,” said Captain Deweese. “It definitely hit home for me that sail training is still really valid for students in today’s day and age.”
