sailing on the sultana

this trip was a unique opportunity to explore the history and environment of the Chesapeake Bay while sailing on an 18th century schooner, the Sultana.

the group explored different types of marine life in the bay,
helped the crew with the sails,
learned the names of the different parts of the ship,
discussed how sailors lived, what they ate and the tools that were used for medical care, and
learned a bit about navigation.

you can’t get much better than class on the water with instructors who enjoy their job so much that they live where they work.
