KP Midshipmen Teaching Seamanship Skills

M/N Floyd-Jones, Midshipman Master of the T/V Kings Pointer, explains navigation to the students.

Sometime the best way to learn is to teach.  The Kings Pointer hosted students from the Philadelphia Maritime Academy Charter High School at Penn's Landing today. The students toured the ship and were taught fire fighting and seamanship skills by the Midshipman crew.  Hopefully we will see some of these students as Kings Pointers!

The Chairman of the Board of the Maritime Academy Charter School is Mr. Eugene Mattioni KP '62 who hosted our Midshipman trainers for a great lunch after the visit.
