Sail Nauticus Partners with Horizons

Posted June 13, 2013

Nauticus Sail 2Horizons Executive Director, Dick Trowbridge was pleased to attend the “blessing of the fleet” for the new Sail Nauticus sailing program on Wednesday, June 12, 2013.  Nauticus is a long standing corporate partner of Horizons Hampton Roads and Horizons is thrilled to work in partnership with Nauticus to be able to offer our 8th grade students an opportunity to learn to sail.

Mayor Fraim spoke at the event about how the program will give many young people an opportunity to experience the teamwork, discipline, and fun that come with sailing.   He specifically mentioned those kids who wouldn’t ever have an opportunity without this program.  No doubt that includes the Horizons students.  Jane Batten, major benefactor for the sailing program, cut the ribbon, and the sailing team from ODU demonstrated the boats in action.
