The Inland Seas Education Association has 2 Astronomy Under Sail trips this summer. The dates are June 30th and August 13th from 9-1:15 PM. Cost is $45/person and the event is limited to 25 participants.
The schooner sets sail on Suttons Bay before sunset and heads out beyond the shore lights where you a clear view of the night sky. Your guide is astronomer Dick Cookman (owner of Enerdyne) and Dick will help you identify constellations and explain the legends behind their names. In addition to the star gazing, you will become the unofficial “crew” of Inland Seas, learning to work the halyards and sheets!
