OCEAN LOVE SAILING DAYS
What is an Ocean Love Sailing Day?
Your child will experience an “Ocean Love Sailing Day” aboard the Carriacou Sloop New Moon with our new friends from the West Indies Sail Heritage Foundation, Learn more about them by visiting their website: www.caribwish.com .
Your child will experience the thrill of sailing and learn about the effect of plastic pollution in the ocean. They will anchor in Carlisle Bay or Galleon Beach, go for a swim, and clean the beach before having lunch (not included) on the boat and sailing back to Falmouth Harbour.
To participate in this amazing adventure, knowing how to swim is a must! Can't swim? No problem!
Meet the Team!
