The Perfection of Summer Sailing

New Englanders wait a long time for summer to hit and when it does, look out! Today was one of those perfectly gorgeous windy days out on Boston Harbor. Everyone who owns a boat was out in force, including Roseway. We took 25 students from Exploration Summer Program out for an afternoon sail. The kids were great and the sailing even better. Roseway maneuvered between all the small boats dotting the bay and headed out past Deer Island and into the blue. While our students learned about navigation and Boston maritime history, we basked in the glory of a real summer day at sea. Coming back to the dock, we cleared 9 knots headed towards the city and felt sad that the sail was over.

There's always tomorrow....
