Residents from Epworth Children’s Home enjoy afternoon cruise on Carolina Girl Yacht

  • Tuesday, April 30, 2013

On Sunday, April 21, 80 children from the Epworth Children’s Home in Columbia traveled to Charleston for an afternoon on a 100 foot private yacht, The Carolina Girl.

This was the third year The Carolina Girl has hosted residents from the Epworth Home. The kids returned just as excited and eager as the year before to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to move such a large vessel. Children were able to sit in the captain’s chair, navigate using the GPS, and have their turn at sounding the horn.

Carolina Girl’s DJ played tunes on the yacht’s theater sound system on the upper deck as the kids danced away while cruising Charleston Harbor and the Intracoastal Waterway. “My favorite part of the trip was the music. They always play exactly what I want to hear,” says Mary, a current resident at the Epworth Children’s Home.

All 80 children attended church at Isle of Palms Methodist Church, followed by lunch and then boarded The Carolina Girl for an afternoon of cruising with Captain Bob Murray and mates. “Our crew enjoys this trip every year because for one afternoon these children can forget about everything else and feel they are a part of something that very few kids get to do,” said Captain Bob Murray, owner and operator of The Carolina Girl.
