ABOUT ALL ABOARD NOLA

Sailing is an ancient birthright for all humans. Unfortunately, in modern times, sailing can feel as though it's not for everyone. The vessels can be expensive, the yacht clubs can be a less-than welcoming place, and even the history of sailing ships can be very loaded, in particular for those whose historical association with sailing includes slavery, conquest, or colonialism. All Aboard NOLA seeks to change that, one charter at a time.

We at All Aboard NOLA are thrilled to share with you what we love to do most: sail and watch sunsets, to commune together, and to learn and relax. Our tours will promote the cultural, social, and ecological well-being of our community. Misogyny, racism, and homophobia have no place on the Mai Tai Two. All passengers will be treated with respect and addressed by their preferred pronouns.

 

OUR MISSION

Capt. David and his partners decided to restore a beautiful old ketch—a stunning boat that had been neglected for a while—and bring her from Morgan City, Louisiana, back to to New Orleans, to provide inclusive, respectful, and progressive-minded sailors an intersection with the many communities that have experienced little outreach from the sailing community.

The vessel, while fundamentally sound, sat in a hot Cajun country sun for many years. David and his team have been hard at work since February to prepare the boat for her next adventure. 

The Mai Tai Two will be ready to begin tours

in early 2020.

Hey everybody, we can't wait to get back to sailing with you, and you know you're going to want to get some time on the water, so feel free to buy yourself or a loved one a gift card, but for now, stay, home, stay safe, and be sure to support service industry folk, because we're starving. Tip your delivery drivers, tip everyone. Take care of each other and stay safe.

 

MEET THE CAPTAIN

CAPTAIN DAVID LEWIS

After 15 years as a journalist and editor, Capt. David's new career is well-suited to his past experience, having served as a sailor in the US Navy, worked for a pilot boat company on the Mississippi River after Hurricane Katrina, as a fly fishing guide, and served on two tall ships, the schooners Freedom Schooner Amistad in New Haven, CT and the Alliance, in Yorktown, Va. David loves carpentry, playing cello, guitar, and banjo, and sailing with new friends on stunning Lake Pontchartrain.
