Appealing offer: field trips under sail

The National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame is joining with the United States Naval Academy and the Pride of Baltimore II to offer a field trip for eighth graders this spring.

The group is asking Annapolis-area schools to take advantage of the program.

The trips are slated to be two groups of 30 per day.

For information, contact Geoff Cuneo, Lee Tawney, or Sandy Sloan at or call (410) 295-3022.

In related news, a series of talks on board the Pride of Baltimore II begins April 23.

The first two on-the-water lectures scheduled are

• Captain Jan Miles was one of three rotating Captains on the original Pride of Baltimore. With 35 years of experience as a professional sailor, his voyages include five Atlantic Ocean crossings, as well as three Pacific voyages.

• Gary Jobson, a former All-American collegiate sailor, won the America’s Cup in 1977 as tactician for Ted Turner. As an ESPN sailing analyst, lecturer and writer, he is the pre-eminent ambassador for sailing in the U.S. and is president of US Sailing.
