Nomad Charters currently supports offshore swimming with the Monterey Bay Swimming Association and the Birdwatchers Swim Club.
LEARN HOW TO BE A SAILOR ABOARD NOMAD
The Youth Sailing Program is one of Nomad Sailing Charter’s core missions and reasons for existence. Because of this, Captain Thom left classroom teaching in order to pursue this path. This outreach into the local Santa Cruz Community is possible through our partnership with Mountains2Sea (mtns2sea.org). We serve high school youth who otherwise would have no access to the Santa Cruz Harbor or the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary.
Many years ago, Captain Brian dreamed of a school sailing ship concept. He never knew how it would be possible, but held onto the underlying dream. Now, because of Nomad Sailing’s partnerships in the community, students spend one of their school days per month engaged in sailing, observing wildlife, collecting water samples for the California Department of Health, and collecting phytoplankton data for the Global Seafarer Study of the Phytoplankton (seccidisk.org).
Team Challenges are other organizations’ opportunity to similarly experience the Monterey Bay! From corporate teams to scouting groups, we’ll get your group at the Nomad’s helm, trimming sails, tacking and gybing, and conducting citizen science projects. For larger groups, we have access to other captained sailing vessels accommodating groups of 24 or more.
