The Schooner Martha Foundation

The Schooner Martha Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that, owns and operates the historic schooner Martha.

Our sole purpose is to maintain and restore  Martha and to use Martha to operate sail training programs. Martha has been under the Foundation’s care since 1996. Martha takes both youths  and adults on sail training adventures in and around the San Juan Islands and Canadian waters.

Martha is not only the oldest working sailboat in the state of Washington but she is also the oldest living flagship of the San Francisco Yacht Club. Martha still flies the SFYC burgee with pride!
