Boston Teachers Union School

Eighth grade students from the Boston Teachers Union School in Jamaica Plain joined Roseway for a beautiful morning sail in Boston harbor today. On the agenda was knot-tying, Boston harbor history, navigation, and touring the compartments of the ship in a lesson we like to call "Life of a Sailor."

Light winds had us on a course to the Mystic River and through Charlestown, exploring the inner part of Boston harbor.

Sixth and seventh graders from BTU will join us later in the week as well--a fine kick-off to a new school year.
