Tall Ship Opportunity

And — if you’ve never been aboard a sail-powered ship before — and incredible experience! With permission from the kind gentleman who came to my classes to present today, here is the PowerPoint presentation with pictures:

And here are the basic highlights from the powerpoint (which has very pretty pictures):
