ELISSA Day Sails DETAILS
From the ELISSA Day Sails organizer:
GHF is able to offer a limited number of ELISSA day sail spots on board as a sail training student. As a sail training student, participants will experience what life was like as a 19th-century sailor. The program includes both hands-on and lecture learning, focusing on setting sails and maneuvering the 145-year-old ship through the Gulf of Mexico. Come with us on this journey through the past and experience your own piece of history.
