Girl Scout Sailing on the Chesapeake

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m.
Where: 80 Compromise Street
Annapolis, MD 21401
During your two hour cruise aboard the Schooner Woodwind, we take a very interactive approach to educate the girls about sailing. As with all of our Girl Scout programs, we have the girls break into smaller groups to work directly with our crew members after the Girl Scouts help to raise the sails. The crew educates by asking questions. This enables our crew to find out the level of interest and knowledge in a fun and interactive way while dispersing fun facts to the Girl Scouts.
