Boat Launch at Eleanor Street Boat House

A great crowd of over 30 students and their families from the Urban Prairie Waldorf School and the Eleanor Street Boathouse After School program participated in launching and rowing the boats that they built, in the Chicago River.

Families enjoyed lunch and beverages provided by Chicago Maritime Arts Center and supervised by Captain Toby!

WGN TV was on hand to cover the event and interviewed our very own Joe Rickard. A great day for everyone involved. Chicago Maritime Arts Center would like to thank our Sponsors, the students and families, our instructors, and everyone who volunteered to make this event a great success.
