The final week
The last fall Semester in the Pacific Northwest of 2013 is entering its final week. This group of ten began their experience on September 4th. In the intervening almost three months they've mountaineered in the North Cascades, climbed at Smith Rock, hiked on the rarely visited Nootka Island, and are now sailing south in Desolation Sound. Motivation is still high to make the most of their last seven days.
Keelboat sailing on a NOLS Semester gives students the opportunity to practice designated leadership in a structured yet dynamic environment. For more sailing opportunities at NOLS Pacific Northwest consider the Semester on the Borders, a Sea Kayak/Sail Course, or the new Waddington Mountaineer/Sail Course.
For their final week this group is joined by Kyle Duba, part of the NOLS Creative team, to capture keelboat sailing video footage for a future "NOLS Pacific Northwest" video and a "Sailing at NOLS" video.
