Captain Nate Handy of the Potomac River cruise ship Spirit of Mount Vernon gives a river navigation lesson to Starfish mentoring program participant Jonathan Jenkins and others during the Headwaters Starfish program’s recent trip, which included a river cruise and a visit to Mount Vernon. The mentors and mentees from Rappahannock learned about Mount Vernon and George Washington. They also learned a great deal about navigation thanks to Captain Handy, who showed how the navigation equipment, channel markings and buoys help to keep river navigation safe.
