NH prep school students set out on semester-at-sea; boat will stop in Cuba

BOSTON (AP) — Students at a New Hampshire prep school are set to embark on a semester-at-sea program sponsored by a Boston-based educational nonprofit that includes a stop in Cuba.

The Boston Globe reports 22 sophomores and juniors from Proctor Academy will set sail Friday on a nine-week voyage through the World Ocean School.

Abby Kidder, co-founder and president of World Ocean School, says the students will travel to Cuba aboard a 1925 national landmark schooner.

When the Roseway reaches Havana, it will mark the first time in 57 years that an original U.S. tall ship docks at the port.

Focusing on the people-to-people exchange, students will spend time volunteering and learning about Havana's culture. They will also study maritime history, science and literature — particularly the works of Ernest Hemmingway.
