First Sea Legs trip underway

The first sea legs trip of the summer is underway! This morning, seven new St. George’s students joined the professional crew and two senior leaders for 5 days aboard Geronimo. After a safety briefing we set the sails and headed south down the Bay.

Ted and Elyse made chicken teriyaki for dinner. It was so good there were no leftovers. At the moment, the students are all on deck playing a word game and hanging out. Many of the students are planning to sleep on deck tonight to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Tomorrow, after chores and breakfast, we’ll set sail for Fishers Island.  

  • 2019 Summer Voyage
Back in Rhode Island

Monday night the students got together to plan our last major passage, from Isle of Shoals to Narragansett Bay. Needing to arrive at the Cape Cod Canal during a specific window, the students decided we had to get underway at 0400 Tuesday. Their careful planning paid off, as we passed through the canal during the max favorable tide. Kade and Patrick were on the helm for our passage through.

Early this morning we arrived in Bristol, our final stop. Since everyone stood watch last night we moved breakfast until 9 am so we could have a little extra sleep. Afterwards, we began “Field Day” a deceptive term that really means a deep clean of the vessel. We had music playing and teams of three assigned to specific sections of the vessel. 

Tomorrow, we have our annual Coast Guard Inspection, which the students will take part in. Vessel inspectors will come to the boat and assess our safety gear and protocols. We’ll  also likely go for a brief sail. The students are well prepared for the task. With the inspection behind us, we’ll celebrate the end of the trip by going out to dinner.
