EDUCATIONAL ADVENTURES ON TALL SHIP WINDY
Ahoy! Join us for an exciting educational adventure aboard the Tall Ship Windy! Great Lakes history and maritime tradition come alive from the decks of our floating classroom with Windy's Mariner Apprentice Program (MAP) for sail training. This unique, hands-on learning experience is a great way to enjoy physics, ecology, history, and storytelling while taking an active part in sailing the vessel. Call us at 312.451.2700 for availability!
Our curriculum is customizable and appropriate for novice sailors of all ages. Students "muster" for a total of three learning stations. We provide two core stations:
- Harnessing the Wind: The "physics" of how a sailing ship sails. With wind as a free energy source, the greatest use of it has been by sailing ships. This module explains how a sailing ship "works", how it can sail against the wind and change direction, and familiarizes the student with the terms associated with sailing.
- The Language and Life of a Sailor: This section is designed to teach the student nautical terms and names for the vessel parts and provide hands-on exploration of the tools, trinkets, and nomenclature of a sailor from the 1880s to the present.
And the third is up to you! Choose from Real Pirates of the Inland Seas, Tall Ships & Ecology, The History of Tall Ships, and more.
