The 63 year old Unicorn has lived many lives.

Capt. Dawn Santamaria - Unicorn
"She was built in 1947 from old German U-boat steel after the second World War was over. Her steal was made of recycled metals that they cut apart and fastened to her ribs. And she was originally built as a fishing troller. And 30 year later she was converted into a sailing schooner. And she has been sailing as a sailing vessel ever since."

Santamaria started Sisters Under Sail, a non-profit leadership development program for women. The Unicorn is the only training vessel with an all-female crew.

Capt. Dawn Santamaria - Unicorn
"So far we have put over 500 teenage girls and 300 women on board. And we sail with a full company of crew, anywhere from 6 to 9 crew members."
