Vid about a sailing program

Postby Rorke » Tue Jun 11, 2013 3:45 pm

CKS Crew,

Well, Spring was fun. Only a few sessions, but that's sometimes all it takes.
Next week, I start the program that totally consumes me for the summer season, and I am going to shamelessly plug it!

In 2011, I started captaining a small wooden tall ship up here in Traverse City. Monday through Friday I take out high-risk/low income youth Monday through Friday on day sails. Teaching sailing takes a back seat to the one-on-one therapy sessions that each kid receives daily.

The reason I took the IKO certification class in November is to reduce the barriers to developing a kitesurf version of this experience-based therapeutic program.

Enjoy the short movie and wish me luck.

Dominate,
Rorke

Kiting is easier than embedding vids.

Fixed it for you. Just keep everything after the "watch?v=" in the embedded quotes. so yours would be "[yotube]MSguCIn0n6M[/yotube]"

Rorke,

I think you are doing something really great and I love your idea of teaching how to kite to those kids.

Hopefully you will be able to tore those barriers down and make that happen, good luck and keep us posted on how things progress!

Cheers
