Thomas E. Colvin RUTH

The sail cargo ship Schooner Ruth, named for an indefatigable daughter of the Canadian Maritimes was conceived and constructed in Barbados by Barbadian and OECS Caribbean craftsmen based on the Canadian grand banks schooner Bluenose of 1921.

Launched December, 2014 RUTH will be an incremental but meaningful step toward the advancement of the cause of sustainable international shipping and the promotion of hybrid wind/power cargo vessels such as the Ecoliner concept.

The Sail Training Program has been designed by Schooner Ruth to celebrate the ties of Barbados and the Windward Islands, New England and the Canadian Maritimes.
