≡ Ranger School Ship: An Exciting Program
For The New Sailing School Vessel Ranger
The historic Continental Navy Ship Ranger commanded by John Paul Jones during the American War of Independence – the first ship to have the ‘Stars and Stripes’ saluted by a foreign nation and the first to engage and capture a Royal Navy ship in British waters, is the model for the new school ship. With Ranger, John Paul Jones “…gave our Navy its earliest traditions of heroism and victory.” By linking our nation’s past with the need to protect it for the future, Palm Beach Maritime Foundation is uniquely positioned to inspire individuals to take responsibility and become better stewards of our glorious maritime history and education of our youth.
