        ScienceBlue

        Science@Sea is included in all our Summer Sail Camp programmes.  It aims to introduce elements of marine science.  The aim is to stimulate awareness of the importance of marine biodiversity and echo systems to climate change and human settlement.  Through conducting simple experiments performed on the yachts by the young people we are able to conduct a health check of our local marine ecosystems and  waters.
