DANA POINT, Calif., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dana Point Concours d'Elegance announced the Ocean Institute will become a beneficiary of the organization.
The Ocean Institute has become nationally known for its hands-on marine science, environmental education and maritime history programs. More than 110,000 K-12 students and 8,000 teachers annually participate in the Institute's 61 award-winning, immersion style programs.
To learn about oceanography, science, and California history, students voyage onto the ocean, study in labs and live aboard all ships or in the chaparral, where they can feel and taste the salty sea spray, sort through live specimens, observe migrating whales, collect scientific data and investigate the culture and world around them. On weekends, they open our doors to the public for a sneak peek into how ocean science, history, and literature are used to inspire life-long learners.
The Dana Point Concours d'Elegance takes place on Sunday, June 27, 2010 on the prestigious Monarch Beach Golf Links at the St. Regis Resort in Dana Point, California.

Richard Henry Dana Jr.: Two Years Before the Mast and Other Voyages (Library of America)
This classic volume collects three
sea-going travel narratives by Richard Henry Dana, Jr., that span 25
years of maritime history, from the age of sail to the age of steam.
The book is written with an unprecedented realism that challenged the romanticism of previous maritime literature, Dana's narrative vividly portrays the daily routines and hardships of life at sea, the capriciousness and brutality of merchant ship captains and officers, and the beauty and danger of the southern oceans in winter.
Included in an appendix is "Twenty-Four
Years After" (1869), in which Dana describes his return to California
in 1859-1860 and the immense changes brought about by American
annexation, the frenzy of the Gold Rush, and the growing commerce of "a
new world, the awakened Pacific."
