College of St. Mary's

A highlight of our week in the Chesapeake was a day sail today with two dozen students from the St. Mary’s College of Maryland.  Located where the southern Potomac meets the bay, St. Mary’s runs one of the most respected sail team programs in the nation.  It was a spectacular day for today’s two-hour sail – sunny and brisk, with both serious sailors and others who were quick studies.  As a result, several St. Mary’s students may participate in our upcoming winter program in Cuba.  Over time, we also hope to forge an ongoing relationship for St. Mary’s with the University of Southern Maine, our accrediting institution, and the University of Cienfuegos, in our Cuban homeport city.
