Trainees from across Aquidneck Island will sail from June 2nd to June 11th from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Newport, Rhode Island. 22 students from Rogers High School, The East Bay Met School, and Portsmouth High School will be accompanied by a chaperone from PHS and Rogers each. Day-to-day will see the trainees standing through watch schedule as well as classroom time. Onboard Educator Vincent Tavani will be immersing trainees in maritime literature and culture. Think- singing sea shanties, reading excerpts from Richard Henry Dana’s Two Years Before the Mast, journaling, and creating!  This is the 2nd voyage of this partnership- read about the first.
