Girl Scouts Sailing on the Chesapeake - Brownies
Who: Girl Scout Brownies
When: Wednesday July 11, 2012, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Where: Schooner Woodwind
Annapolis Marriott Waterfront
80 Compromise Street
Annapolis, MD 21401
During your two hour cruise aboard the 74 foot Schooner Woodwind, we take a very interactive approach to educating the girls about sailing and the "Wonders of Water". We have the girls break into smaller groups to work directly with the crew members after they all help to raise the sails. (Around eight girls to a crew member.) 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 them. After about 20-30 minutes of working with the crew (depending on their interest level), the girls are led back to the captain to quiz their new found knowledge. The captain will ask a question about the information they just learned, and when the girl raises their hand and a correct answer is given, they will take a turn helming (steering) the boat. It is our intent to get every girl a turn at the "helm".
There is so much to see as we sail past the United States Naval Academy into the Chesapeake Bay. Along the way, we point out the interesting sights to everyone aboard. All passengers get the opportunity to take a turn at the helm, including the family members who brought their child aboard.
Fees: $45 per adult
$43 per scout 12 & over
$30 per child under 12
