||WHEN AND IF
is the quintessential John G. Alden
designed schooner, built by FF Pendleton in Wiscasset,
Maine for Colonel and Mrs. George S. Patton.
She was launched in 1939 and the Pattons planned to
sail her around the world "when and if" Patton
returned from the war that he saw looming in Europe.
Unfortunately, Patton - by then a famous General - was
killed in a freak auto accident shortly after the end
of the war. But while he never sailed WHEN AND IF completely
around the world, he did sail her before his death,
relishing her superior ability under sail.
Enjoy a peaceful, serene, comfortable sail that is fun
and safe - a completely crewed sailing charter cruise
aboard a classic schooner ship - fit for a general.
Available for family sailing or special events such
as weddings or corporate events, complete with ship's

group with young children or teenagers, or for a group
of friends to charter for a relaxing enjoyable cruise.

For a day sail she can comfortably accommodate up to

a corporate outing, or a group of friends looking for
