Call of the Sea periodically hosts teachers and their supporters for educational partner and teacher appreciation sails. We recently spent a weekend, August 13 & 14, hosting 60 teachers and family members on 3 hour educational sails. We aim to provide inspiration, showcase our educational platform and interactive learning activities and most of all, show teachers a really good time!
