ANCIENT MARINERS SAILING SOCIETY AT A GLANCE
The Ancient Mariners Sailing Society (AMSS) is a fraternity of people interested in the preservation of vessels of classic design. As owners of historically relevant vessels, AMSS members understand that they serve as the temporary line stewards of true maritime treasures. As such the Ancient Mariners fleet comprises a “Living Museum” of boats in service which are well loved and cared for, and which are shown and raced together on a regular basis.
Ancient Mariners Sailing Society is in the business of changing and shaping lives. The work we do at our Non-Profit Organization is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving some of our society’s biggest challenges. We make sure our partners are empowered by creating opportunities for individuals and communities.
At Ancient Mariners Sailing Society, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Food Donation Drop-Off is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
PROGRAMS & EVENTS
During the course of the year we hold monthly membership meetings which are open to all members and friends. A guest speaker provides an informative presentation and the Commodore updates everyone on upcoming events.
We are also invited to special events at the San Diego Maritime Museum, local boatyards, and yacht clubs.
PRESERVATION & EDUCATION
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Homeless Outreach is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
"Sometimes a beautiful boat is simply worthy of devotion, reverence and awe, and no one doubts it. A beautiful boat is as obviously invaluable as a Leonardo sketch or Monet’s water lilies. The boat can be a magnificent structure. And the boat most likely to be deemed so is surely the wooden boat."
