The wooden schooner “Atlantas” was built in Nova Scotia in 1968 by master shipwright David Stevens. Atlantas is a 52-foot replica of many famous racing and fishing schooners of the 19th century. Atlantas sailed to California in 1970 where she became the flagship of the USC Nautical Science Program under the direction and ownership of the Nautical Science Program founder, Captain Ron Remsburg.
Atlantas is currently owned and operated by “Seafaring Traditions LLC” for the continued mission of teaching navigation and seamanship to students at USC under the direction of Lars P. Harding
