Box of Rain starts introducing our kids at age 9 to maritime activities. Summer campers learn to sail, canoe, kayak, and row. By the time they’re in middle school, they know their way around a boat and are ready for skills-based training. Last Fall, a handful of Box of Rainers took Intro to High School Sailing at Eastport Yacht Club. They shared their skills with our little ones this summer in their role as Counselors in Training. Eventually we hope some of our sailors gain certification in small boat sailing instruction. Once again this Fall, we'll be making sailing instruction available to our Box of Rain kids through a generous grant from the Annapolis Yacht Club.
