A Typical Day Going Ashore

Right so let’s frame this up with the right mindset. You’re sailors are here for three principle reasons:

  1. Learn to sail
  2. learn to be a reliable members and leaders of a successful team
  3. have fun, this is summer camp after all.

Visiting and exploring cool places and having a fun vacation voyage is just as much part of this program as is the sailing, teamwork and leadership experiences our camp offers. Having a great trip, and the amazing experiences is the reward for being part of an excellent team having been part of why all of us arrived to where we wanted to be.

Although this schedule and the activities will be adjusted for each crew and each destination, below is a example of how our days ashore will be coordinated.

  • 0600 – First Alarm – Captain and Galley Master Rise, Shower, Cook Breakfast
  • 0630 – Second Alarm – Rest of the Crew rise, wash hands and face and dress for breakfast.
  • 0700 – 0730 – Breakfast
  • 0730 – 0830 – Morning Chores and Shower Time
    • Shower Schedule 10 Minutes Each
  • 0830 – 0900 – Disembark Ship
  • 0900 – 1200 – Morning Activities
    • Shopping/Provisioning
    • Tours, Museums and Landmarks
    • Beaches, Dinghy Sailing, Fun
  • 1200 – 1230 – Lunch
  • 1230 – 1700 – Afternoon Activities
    • Similar to Morning Activities
  • 1700 – 1730 – Return to Ship
  • 1730 – 1830 – Evening Chores and Shower Time
    • Shower Schedule 10 Minutes Each
  • 1830 – 1930 – Dinner
  • 1930 – 1945 – 15 Minutes of Electronics (iPhone, android, kindle, etc)
    • Although one of the reasons for getting away is to get away from electronics, the internet and pervasive use of social networking. Staying with the times, giving the kids 15 minutes a few times a week while we at anchor or at dock we feel is still a good way for kids chat with family, catch up or post on Facebook, and relieve some of that internet withdrawal. 15 minutes is enough time to get a few things out-of-the-way without the opportunity to get retrenched and dependant in the electronic lifestyle
  • 1930 – 2200 – Evening Activities: Journal, Free Study, Reading, Games, Letter Writing, General Free Time
  • 2200 – Lights Out
