9:00 am: Let's Go For a Sail!


Sep 28

The Lighthouse is partnering with Call of the Sea for a Saturday Sail! Call of the Sea provides environmental education under sail. Experience the effects of wind and climate on a large sailing vessel called Schooner Seaward. Work in teams to haul a line and raise the sails and eat lunch with their crew to learn more about their experiences. Their crew members collectively have experience on all kinds of sailing vessels around the country and world, conducted oceanography research, and specialize in on-the-water environmental education. We will meet at the Lighthouse and travel to the ship together! Space is limited so RSVP right away by calling or emailing Amber Sherrard at (415)-694-7353 or asherrard@lighthouse-sf.org.

Youth Extreme Recreation Adventure: Call of the Sea Cruise
Saturday, September 28 from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm

During the 2019 and 2020 school years, the LightHouse Youth Program will be hosting monthly extreme recreation activities and adventures for youth that are blind or have low vision. Those that sign up for these monthly outings will have opportunities to make new friends, meet mentors and develop life skills that will help them be successful in other aspects of life - all while enjoying the wonderful recreation options that the Bay Area and surrounding areas have to offer.

The September outing will have youth that are blind or low vision and their immediate families join students from the LightHouse Adult programs and the experienced crew from Call of the Sea for a day-long sailing adventure and potluck. Students of all ages will be participating in activities that will allow them to learn about our local waters and wildlife as well as the maritime culture and tradition. Between raising the sails and scraping the bottom of the bay students and crew will have plenty of time to make friends and enjoy the day of sailing.
