Think Sail - Schooner Sorca

Think Sail Inc. is a Nova Scotia company operating a beautiful 67′ traditional schooner – Sorca –  pursuing sail training, private and corporate charters, and participating in Tall Ships events.

The vessel was built in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia by Murray Stevens.  Four generations of the Stevens family have handcrafted Nova Scotia schooners – from Amos Stevens at the beginning of the century to his great-grandson Murray.  The Stevens have earned a reputation of being world-class boat builders and have been described as building boats that have become an extension of themselves.

Originally built in 1978, Sorca (Gaelic word meaning “brightness”) was extensively upgraded at Berthon’s shipyard in the UK and is well proven in both coastal cruising and numerous safe, speedy trans-Atlantic crossings.  In 1984 she sailed as a Tall Ship in the trans-Atlantic race from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Liverpool, England.  Sorca returns as a Tall Ship vessel under the ownership of Think Sail Inc.
