SEE MR. DITTRICH FOR DETAILS AND APPLICATION TO GO ON THE NEXT SAILING ADVENTURE IN MARCH 2019 DURING SPRING BREAK


Mr. Dittrich accompanies Middle School/High School students on a week long sailing adventure in the Bahamas.  Students gain self-confidence, positive self-esteem, and knowledge as they learn how to sail a 46 foot cutter/ketch.  School knowledge applied during the trip includes:  navigation, geography, astronomy, weather, math, physics, marine biology, botany, oceanography, geology, history, storytelling, journal writing, cross-cultural experiences, teamwork, and problem solving.  We visit the Exuma Islands and do lots of snorkeling in search of conch and lobster, coral reefs, colorful fish, and pirate treasure.
