Youth programs

New this year is a collaborative project with the Port Townsend Marine Science Center, the Marine Science Under Sail program. Spragg said kids age 11-15 can enjoy an overnight cruise on a 26-foot sailboat while learning both boating and marine science. She said a sailing instructor and a science instructor will be aboard, which benefits the science education sides of things because it allows students to access portions of the marine environment they simply couldn’t from shore. “We’ve been trying to come up with ways to get the

marine science on the water. This is an attempt to pool our resources to the benefit of both [the NWMC’s and the Science Center’s] camp populations.” The Marine Science Under Sail program costs $250 and is scheduled for July 6-7. Several other overnight programs are planned throughout the summer, including a late July cruise to Mystery Bay for ages 11-15, July 20-21, $225. Youth age 12 and up can step aboard the schooner Martha for extended sailtraining trips to various regattas and events, starting on June 6. They can enjoy

environmental activities, kayaking and hiking while learning how to raise sails and hoist the anchor. Trips can last three to seven days, with one 13-day trip planned to the Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound in early September. Costs range from $600 to $2,000 for the extended trip. Spragg said the NWMC encourages kids to participate in the Messing About in Boats and Learn to Sail programs. She said many members of the high school sailing teams got their start in the programs and volunteer as instructors in the summer. “All of the teams

started in the youth Learn to Sail program. It’s quite a sailing legacy – we’re very proud of it,” she said. Learn to Sail starts June 24, with three-hour classes for five consecutive days. Age ranges vary from 8-12 to 10-18; classes cost $180. Rowing classes are also available from the independent Rat Island Rowing and Sculling Club. Its boats are housed at the NWMC and its programs operate out of that facility. Erica Delma, Jefferson County YMCA program director, said she joined the program after moving to the area in 2003, with the club See Sailing, Page C14▼

Horse Partners, a program developed by the Jefferson Equestrian Association (JEA) in partnership with Camp Beausite Northwest, is offering classes this summer for children with disabilities and others who would benefit from therapeutic riding. Mary Craft Nepute, who is certified as a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) international instructor, offers the classes at no cost to riders. Classes take place at Heron Pond Farm, 152 Douglas Way, Port Townsend, on six Tuesday afternoons, beginning on June 25. Each class can accommodate as many as four riders. A number of children from Jumping Mouse Children’s Center have filled up a class for at-risk youths, there are openings for children 6-18 with disabilities. Horse Partners also is looking for volunteers to assist riders in tacking and mounting, as well as side walking, if the rider needs

assistance. Volunteers are trained, and classes are conducted according to therapeutic riding principles established by PATH. Horse Partners’ focus is to try to enhance the ability of each rider, with the goal of having children become independent riders. JEA members hope to build an arena and wheelchair-accessible facilities at the horse park, so that they can expand and continue this program. For information on how to volunteer or sign up for a lesson, contact Linda Mattos at 385-5837 or 301-5723.

Yoga For the Right Now Moment

Yoga is an ancient art that helps the practitioner, or yogi, move into a more realized and often healthier relationship with their current individual body. Life is a gift we didn’t create. A miracle happening to us right now, even when the right now is in transition or uncomfortable. Through the practice of yoga the awareness that we are not only one local body but also the specific expression of the totality in body develops and grows until it sees itself as the pre-existing truth of who we really are. At Tenderpaws Nöle and Gary teach what we call Lila Yoga. This is “the Yoga of Divine Play where the opposites hold hands, hold each other inside of one heart.” Both Nöle and Gary teach a gentle but deep form of yoga combining breath work, movement or asana, meditation and sound as well as offerings that come from their personal practice. Nöle is a level 3 certified i-Rest teacher. She specializes in Yoga Nidra for emotional as well as physical life challenges.

Adult programs

For adults hoping to master sailing and other marine activities, Spragg said plenty of options are available. Weekly adult Learn to Sail programs kick off June 14. The three-hour classes are held every Friday until Aug. 30, cost $60, and provide an introduction to the basics of sailing. For those interested in more advanced sailing education, or getting their keelboat certification, weekend classes are available for $300 and $400. “Once they learn to sail, they can join the Thunderbird Club,” Spragg said. For $125 a month, club members can access one of two NWMC boats and take them out when they’re not being used for classes. “It’s an answer to the question ‘I’ve learned to sail, now what?’” Spragg said. “We’re really just trying to get people out on the water. We live in a beautiful spot. Port Townsend looks great from the water.” To encourage locals and tourists to see the city from out on the bay, Spragg said

the NWMC is continuing a tour program in which a 30-foot motorboat is taken past the downtown Port Townsend waterfront. She said the short cruises are piloted by volunteers, and the fee is a suggested donation only. It’s a good opportunity to see the city and learn some of its history, she added. “We just cruise town and see Port Townsend from the water and tell a little bit of the history,” she said. “We had over 400 people do it last year. That’s over 400 people that wouldn’t have gotten on the water otherwise.” Spragg said the tour is great for families with small children. It ran July to

August last year and should start when the weather warms up this year. Spragg said the programs at the NWMC offer children and adults a sense of independence by giving them the tools to master boating on their own terms. “It’s a wonderful, great way to have an appreciation for our natural environment. We are all connected to the water,” Spragg said. “It’s a very empowering thing to kids to get themselves from one place to another in a boat.” To register for NWMC programs or to learn more, visit or call 385-3628, ext. 104.

Punch cards are Many physicians and therapists recommend aquatic therapy because it can provide benefits not possible with other treatments and advance individuals to a higher level of muscle fitness and mobility sooner, Matkins said. Water exercise and therapy offer advantages over land-based exercise and therapy. Buoyancy provided by the water allows class participants to move more easily with decreased stress on muscles, joints and bones while increasing flexibility and balance, according to Matkins. The resistance of the water allows for higher workout intensities with less impact on the body. The “support” received from the water makes exercising easier and less painful, allowing exercise sessions to last longer without increased effort or joint or muscle pain, she said.
