The Schooner Isaac H. Evans is a kid-friendly Maine windjammer creating long-lasting memories and honoring the environment on single- and multi-night sailing adventures. Built in 1886, the Evans is America's oldest working oyster schooner. She was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1991. Families with children as young as age six can spend a single night or up to six nights aboard learning how to run the ship. Everyone learns about wildlife, lobstering, lighthouses, islands, weather, teamwork, maritime history, and more while experiencing this living museum. It's not a hands-off, viewed from behind velvet ropes experience, it is hands-on and real . . . moving from one place to another with the power of the wind like sailors from over a century ago

Dan Bookham, of the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce, said, "It would be great to rally for Brenda and Brian of the Evans as they were the ones who got the ball rolling on the very successful  "Coolest Small Towns" vote for Rockland a couple of years back that brought great national press attention to the region: it is time to return the favor!"

The New England Travel web site reads, "Based on the tidal wave of nominations it received, the Schooner Isaac H. Evans, which sails from Rockland, Maine, is the New England attraction to beat." Now we need that tidal wave of votes!
