Sails & Tales 2018

Sails & Tales of USNA Outers will be back in 2018! If you’re looking for other ways to meet up with Alumni in a venue other than football, here’s your chance! The first Sails & Tales of USNA Outers was a resounding success with many tales told and lots of amazing sailing.

Built in 1922 in Boothbay, Maine, Ladona recently completed a two-year rebuild and is fitted to carry 16 passengers. Schooner Ladona is reserved by USNAOuters to sail and tell old tales September 6-10, 2018.

The Ladona is the only schooner in Maine to feature topside dining on a stunning wooden table which fits the entire complement of passengers plus the captain. The crew is simply awesome and loved sailing with us as much as we enjoyed their incredible hospitality. Chef Anna makes gourmet meals for the Ladona in the summer and in winter refines her skills in one of the leading town restaurants. To go along with Anna’s fabulous meals, Joe and Brook will be selecting the wine list.

Penobscot Bay is truly a sailors’ paradise. If you’re interested in enjoying 4 nights with fellow alumni in this incredible setting, please contact

Berth, food (including awesome lobster bake), tales, sails, and WINE will be approximately the same as 2017 ($1,375/pp), although we plan to include the tip and an additional wine allowance in the price this year. The total, all-in price will be $1,600/pp.
