Sailing & Science Adventure on the Bay

What to Expect

Get ready for an exhilarating afternoon on the bay, but don't stress...absolutely NO SAILING EXPERIENCE is required. We will be learning a few basic sailing skills and how to sail together as a team, but we are also free to simply relax and enjoy!

Our Crew

The Science Under Sail crew is made up of Wing Gee and his children.  LHS really appreciates his donation!

Craig Strang, LHS associate director and marine educator extrordinaire, will be aboard and sharing the science of San Francisco Bay.

Jay Palace will be representing Group Experiential Learning aboard and stands ready to help anyone who wants to learn some sailing basics.  Be prepared to be surprised by what we learn about the bay and each other's communication and team skills!  Here's a look at what our cruise may be like.

Our Yacht & Captain

We'll be sailing aboard the fine yacht, Liberty, a Lafitte 66 and the flagship of Big Boat Charters, owned by our friend and GEL charter partner, Frederik Norgaard. 

Frederik has truly sailed the seven seas. His jouneys include Caribbean cruises, voyages on the Aegean Sea around Greece and Turkey and adventures on the Baltic with the world famous skipper, Troels Klovedale on the yacht, Norkaberan. When Craig isn't regaling us with science, Frederik has stories abound, including how Liberty was delivered across the Atlantic and through the Panama Canal.

Visit Big Boat Charters to see some great photos of Liberty.
