120-year old Barkentine Gazela in Philadelphia


This organization maintains and operates two historic ships, a 110 year old tall ship Gazela Primeiro and a 1902 tugboat Jupiter. Maintenance work occurs year-round and includes carpentry, rigging, engineering, splicing, and painting. Both ships still sail, with Gazela participating in Tall Ships Events on the East Coast and the Jupiter making runs on the Delaware River. To volunteer, anyone may join the Guild. Ages present on our vessels range from 14 (with parental supervision) to 76, male and female, and all walks of life. Most people joining the Guild do not have any experience on vessels. Members are trained to operate the ships and, after providing 50 hours of volunteer maintenance work and attending training classes, are eligible to sail to other ports. We also have volunteer opportunities in our office for public relations, youth education, communications, grant writing, and docent work. Interested in joining? Come check out the ships every Saturday at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia. You'll find us at the foot of Market Street.
