Panthers @ Sea 2011

A Wonderful Day at Sea!

On June 7, 80 lucky Jordan students set sail from Alamitos Bay aboard private boats from several of our local yacht clubs.  Counselor John Tran and Co-Principal Mario Jimenez set up the wonderful day and worked closely with skippers and first mates from 22 boats.  Students practiced basic sailing techniques, learned to pilot and set the sails and explored the Bay from shore to shore.  Four of the racing boats jockeyed for position as they raced around a red buoy while other boats investigated sea lions, a pod of dolphins and got up-close and personal with the oil islands.  The wind was mild, the seas calm - a beautiful day for sailing. Go Panthers!  See Ms. Maben in room 1308 if you would like copies of photos - bring a large flash drive!
