Students and Sailing and Learning, Oh My!

It's the end of November and we've already wrapped up two weeks of high adventure education for roughly 50 seventh-grade students here in St. Croix. Our super education coordinator, Eden (standing left), has been fine-tuning our curriculum and demanding a high return from our crew on the frontlines. And the crew is delivering a solid product. Despite the lack of wind and the high heat, kids have been responding enthusiastically to their lessons in navigation, how boats work, ocean optics, natural history, peotry of the sea, knots, physics of sail, and various teambuilding activities like climbing the rig.

Thanksgiving is coming and team Roseway has a lot to be thankful for!
