1st Voyage - Landed, not recovered
May 21, 2015
Organized by Amy Johnson with the support of Mr. and Mrs. Kennon and Bay View High alumna Kathryn Hansen and her husband, Gary (South Shore Yacht Club members), “Sconis” was released in Lake Michigan approximately eight miles off Milwaukee on 21 May 2015. The video of her launch can be viewed here.
It is being tracked by many including Ms. Nelson’s Chemistry and Physics/POE class where they are learning about latitude and longitude, marine forecasts, and the Great Lakes.
A few days later, it made landfall on the Kenosha Sand Dunes.
