National Park Service Teams up With Roseway

December marks the launch of our partnership with the National Park Service in a program called "Discovering Salt River" serving all public school 6th graders in St. Croix. Roseway crew was so excited to welcome our first group of students this morning. 6th graders from Alfredo Andrews spent the day on Roseway as we sailed towards Salt River, just like Columbus and his crew did in 1493. Students learned about navigation, the principle of lift, how to tie knots, local ecology, the life of a sailor, trade routes and challenged themselves by climbing the rig. We had some great wind and it was a successful day of adventure and education. We look forward to working with more of St. Croix's energetic and intelligent 6th graders!
