Announcing the Mon Tiki Floating Classroom Project
From the Sailing Montauk Website:
Here at Sailing Montauk, we recognize our little hamlet is not simply a collection of businesses serving the summer tourist trade, Montauk is also the thriving year-round community we call home. We also recognize that life offers rewards and responsibilities that go beyond what can be tallied on a spread sheet. The “good life” is measured as much by what we give as by what we get.
During the shoulder season, Mon Tiki is available as a “floating classroom”, hosting day trips for school and other youth groups so that children can learn hands-on about physics, marine science, low-impact and sustainable technology, and teamwork. These outings will be offered at no cost, and are our way of building ongoing community service into our business model.
If you’re an educator or youth group leader, we invite you to get in touch with us. The number of Floating Classroom trips we offer each season is limited. Trip size is limited to 30 participants total, and we ask that your student to chaperone ratio be no greater than 6:1.
Mon Tiki is a US Coast Guard Certificated Passenger Vessel, operated by a USCG-licensed captain and crew. Mon Tiki is fully insured for charter and school-trip operation. Documentation available by request.
Presently there will be another announcement of an underwriting project for the Hampton Ballet Theatre School and Hampton Chamber Orchestra. I would be deeply grateful if Gents readers and writers would help us get the word out about both undertaking!
