Sailing Takes Us Away...
Updated: Jun 30, 2022
What a day! Thanks to Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (aka CRAB Sailing) for taking a dozen of our kids out on the Bay, powered only by the wind - our wonderful if somewhat inconstant friend. :-)
Our kids had a truly awesome time, taking the rudder, manning the mainsheet, a breeze in their face. Please visit our partners at CRAB Sailing, look into volunteering with them (and with us) and just do what you can to get out on the water!
Here are just a few photos from the day - mostly from one boat, but we had kids sailing 6 different sailing vessels that day!
Managing the sheet (the ropes that control the sails). Young sailors learning to catch the wind!
Getting ready to set sail!
Untying from the dock and about to cast away into the Bay!
Taking the rudder. Steer us straight and steady as she goes! CRAB volunteers make it easy for our students to take the helm!
All smiles after a great day on the water!
