Whitaker Students Sail the High Seas!

Raising the sails, pulling ropes, setting a course downwind... not things most fifth and sixth graders get to experience on a school day. A group of Whitaker's upper graders were fortunate enough to be invited by Orange County GRIP to the Dana Point Tall Ships Festival in Dana Point, California. Students were transported back in time as they boarded a tall ship modeled after those that sailed hundreds of years ago. Not only were the students passengers, they even became crew members! After students raised the sails and tied off the lines, the giant ship sailed swiftly and silently along the coast of Dana Point. The peaceful sailing was only interrupted by the sound of cannon fire from our ship, followed by cheers from students, as the ships reenacted sea battles, firing mock cannons from the sides of the ships. The weather was exceptional, the wind was just right, and the students of Whitaker experienced a day of sailing they will never forget!
