AtCup Kids Resources for at home and remote learning © Atlantic Cup

In times like these, we recognize the tremendous amount of stress on parents and teachers to keep kids engaged and learning in a remote environment.

To help alleviate some of that stress, Atlantic Cup Kids presented by 11th Hour Racing has a variety of worksheets on marine life, barrier islands, weather and glaciers that are geared for children from age 8-13 that are easily accessible via atlanticcup.org/kids

In addition, Captain Dave, who has won the Atlantic Cup and sailed solo around the world will be providing his in-school lessons via video which will be published on The Atlantic Cup Kids Facebook page and Portal. We will also be posting interviews from past Atlantic Cup competitors on all things about what it's like to sail offshore (what you eat, when you sleep, what it's like to surf through waves).

We will endeavor to post a new video every Tuesday and Thursday at 11a ET.

To access the materials, please visit atlanticcup.org/kidsportal We're adding more resources as they're created - so keep checking back.

And if you or your students or children have questions for Captain Dave, please send them to us at and we'll be sure to answer them in the forthcoming videos.

Who's Captain Dave?

Captain Dave is a lifelong sailor who won the Atlantic Cup in 2013 and sailed solo around the world in 2014 and he is the author of Spirit of a Dream: A Sailor's Ultimate Journey Around the World Alone. Since 2016 Dave has been teaching Kids around the U.S. about the oceans our planet and what it's like to be sailing solo.
