Raise the anchor! Hoist the sails! On this two-hour sailing adventure you’ll play the part of schooner sailor as you explore the history of sailing on the Great Lakes.
Sailing was the Early European settlers’ preferred mode of water transportation which helped facilitate not only travel between places, but also the trading of goods. Today, sailing remains a popular recreational activity among Great Lakes visitors. Not only will you have the opportunity to raise the anchor, hoist the sails, and steer the ship, you’ll also learn how sails work, what keeps the ship afloat, and why the ship moves the way it does.
This program is appropriate for learners of all ages, so bring along your family and friends and we’re sure everyone will learn something new and feel more connected to the Great Lakes.
