Escuela de Vela

23 April 2012
There is a local sailing school for island kids. I helped out for a day, launching the boats, towing them out to open water and watching to make sure they didn't end up in the mangroves, or sailing for Florida. It was the usual chaos of herding cats - and totally fun. Probably one of the only really positive things going on for kids on the island. I've been told the regular schools are a joke, meeting for only an hour or two a day, when they have class at all. But everywhere I've ever seen them, those little bathtub boats (Optimists) bring smiles and opportunity to young mariners.
