St. Stephen’s Episcopal School Mini-Sailboat Launch

September 2017

The International SeaKeepers Society facilitated the deployment of two mini-sailboats, Kestrel and Maurick, from D/Y ANGARI to support an education experience for St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Bradenton, FL.

Students and faculty from St. Stephen’s Episcopal School and Maurick College, a 6th-12th grade school, in Vught, The Netherlands, collaborated on the deployment of two mini-sailboats. The vessels are part of Educational Passages, an organization that spreads ocean and environmental literacy through the deployment of GPS-equipped mini-sailboats. Students and educational facilities participate in the deployments and are able to track the vessels as they traverse the ocean and learn about ocean currents and dynamics.

This is the first SeaKeepers trip with D/Y ANGARI and with both education institutions.
