Summer Learning Voyage: Day One

Long Island in the Boston Harbor Islands

Roseway is safely anchored off of Long Island in the Boston Harbor Islands with 11 new crew members from Boston Day and Evening Academy. This is World Ocean School's third annual Summer Learning Voyage with this school. Students have been anticipating this program all semester, and have spent the last 3 days in the classroom for last minute preparations, packing, and introduction classes.

After a send off party with BDEA friends and families, BDEA crew and Roseway crew practiced palming lines, learned basic knots, and practiced setting the jib. We are excited about the energetic and supportive community that is already forming between BDEA crew and Roseway crew, and we are looking forward to hauling back our anchor tomorrow and setting our course towards the Cape Cod Canal.
