About This Activity

Your children will learn about the danger of the Atlantic, the thrill of maritime life, and the connection that Maryland had with the rest of the world in colonial days. To get to Maryland, the early colonists had to find their way at sea. Kids will be taught about early navigation and get to try out methods of dead reckoning. Here in town, arriving and departing ships were equipped with the essentials, and so participants will get to try out some of the oldest skills of a sailor: sail and rope making. Maintaining your vessel at sea and ashore was important to a sailor’s survival, so your children will also be taught about why ships were caulked, and how to do it. Time permitting, we will also be learning some basic sailor’s knots.
