Ten students from St. Thomas's Eudora Kean High School boarded Roseway at Yacht Haven Grande today to spend a Monday morning in a different kind of class. Though winds were light and the sun was hot, this group was ready to set sail. They fearlessly climbed out on the bow sprint, toured the ship from bow to stern (including an in depth look at our engine room) learned a series of knots, and got an introduction to navigation. Holding her own as the only girl in a class of all boys, Shenequa (pictured above) mastered the bow sprit and was pretty proud of herself.
Another group from Eudora Kean High School will join us tomorrow, along with students from the University of the Virgin Islands. It's a busy week at World Ocean School here in St. Thomas.
