I'm looking for a taff rail log with spinners for the educational tallship "Spirit of South Carolina." Perferably donated.
"Spirit of South Carolina" is a 140’ tall ship operated by the South Carolina Maritime Foundation. (see www dot scmaritime dot org) Our mission is to creation opportunities for life-changing experiences resulting in leaders for tomorrow’s communities. We do this by offering day and overnight programs to students ages 11-19. During one of our signature programs, Spirit Ocean Adventure, high school students become active members of the ship’s crew, immersed in all aspects of shipboard life. Students stand watch, navigate and ultimately assume command of "Spirit of South Carolina." Traditional navigation is emphasized with modern electronic navigation taking a secondary role. Students learn how to plot a dead reckoned position and how to plan a compass and sailing course. Having a taff rail log is vital for teaching traditional dead reckoning.
South Carolina Maritime Foundation is a public nonprofit 501(c)(3).
