Tall ship offers public sails, pirate adventures

Kalmar Nyckel is sailing back from Massachusetts to her home state of Delaware and is expected to arrive in Lewes Friday, Aug. 5. The public is invited to join the ship for a sail or to sign on as volunteer crew. Public sails will begin Sunday, Aug. 7, and will be offered through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 5.

Kalmar Nyckel is also seeking volunteers to join her sailing crew. No sailing experience is necessary and the experience is open to people ages 18-75-plus (ages 14-17 with a parent).
Those who join the captain and crew for the two-and-a-half week class will learn to sail this magnificent tall ship. Graduates can assist with day sails in Delaware and voyage with the ship to other ports along the East Coast.
This summer class is designed for residents who can commute to Lewes and are able to commit the time for the class and sailing. This course will take place in Lewes Aug. 6 to 20. Those who are interested should contact the captain at CaptainSharon@kalmarnyckel.org for more details and to register. Another course will be offered this winter in Wilmington.

This is so cool! Are the volunteers mostly teens, or is this something the senior do?

The volunteers that I have seen over the years were mostly young to middle age adults. They truly sail the ship and you would have to be physically up to it.

True--it looks like fun but would probably be a physical challenge for most seniors (unless they've been sailing all their life).
