Need Schooners to paticipate in new junior cruising program

The Waterfront Center in Oyster Bay, NY, would like to establish a junior sail cruising program and is seeking schooner owners interested in taking part in a pilot program the last two weeks of August. The details of the program are still under discussion but some of the basics are set. The pilot sessions will be five-day excursions, the first leaving from Oyster Bay and ending up in Greenport, and the second returning to Oyster Bay. Stops would be made at interesting points in Long Island Sound, including Mystic Seaport, and each leg would include one overnight sail. Each participating vessel would carry a group of up to six children and one supervisor from the Waterfront Center. The age group would be kids entering 7th to 9th grade. The overall goal is to use the sailing experience to instill teamwork, develop good safety habits, learn to conserve and enjoy the marine habitat, and to appreciate the sailing tradition. Participating vessels would be compensated. If you are interested please contact me.
