This summer, Courageous had the opportunity to provide reuseable water bottles to all of our young sailors. Fitting perfectly with our Waste Free Wednesdays and commitment to heightened environmental awareness for our sailing center as a whole, the water bottles provided us the chance to significantly minimize waste.
A few weeks ago we accompanied the new england aquarium interns on an adventure to lovells island where they spent their time tide pooling, swimming, and enjoying the local views. Sailing broomstick and phoenix, an erikson 29 and a seafarer, was a challenging experience for the two of us because we generally spend our time on smaller boats. The size of these vessels was intimidating at first but the guidance of two veteran cruising instructors, leo and ethan, we got the hang of it and picked up valuable new skils. By the time we returned to pier 4, the feeling of being overwhelmed had subsided, and was replaced by a feeling of newfound confidence.
