Stony Brook School - Port Jefferson Trip

10 October 2009 | Port Jefferson, Long Island

The schooner Liberty has just returned from a trip to Port Jefferson, Long Island with the kids from Stony Brook School.

We departed Tuesday, under sunny skies from Liberty Landing Marina with students from Stony Brook School aboard. As we voyaged up the East River, into Long Island Sound, the students participated in programs which covered marine ecology, maritime history, theory of sailing, coastal navigation and much more.

On Wednesday a Gale was forecasted to blow through, so instead of sailing to Norwalk, CT, we stayed in Port Jefferson, and a middle school class joined us for English Lit (Treasure Island - parts of a sailing ship), sailing, and marine ecology.

We waited for the gale to blow through, and sailed back to our slip yesterday.
