Maine Sail Freight – IWSA Member
Maine Sail Freight’s mission is to re-enliven historic traditions linking local lands, seas, people and foods. MSF will launch an annual sail freight voyage engaging food producing partners, cargo delivery partners, educational organizations, and the public.
We believe through this effort awareness and support can be built for the complex issues facing the next generation of producers and locally owned businesses on land and sea in the 21st century.
Maine Sail Freight’s trade route will stretch from Maine’s Mid-Coast south to Boston Harbor. Using primarily wind-power the Harvey Gamage will carry a cargo of Maine grown and processed food, branded as Maine Sail Freight goods. This portion of the project will evoke a sense of the historic, while informing dockside visitors of contemporary wind-powered trade such as;
