February 15, 2017 was the inaugural “Classroom on the Water” for twelve students from Gifford Youth Achievement Center. Accompanied by two staff, the students heard an introduction to sailing from Sailing Director Mary Morgan, watched some videos featuring YSF sailors, and toured the workshop, boat storage and waterfront facilities. High winds prevented the scheduled pontoon boat ride as well as the YSF high school sailing practice, but the GYAC group will return weekly for on-water sessions observing the VBHS Sailing Team in action on the Indian River Lagoon.
