As the crew of Geronimo packed the boat Sunday for a more-than-two-week transatlantic journey to Grenada in the West Indies, they made sure to pack some important food. “We have loaded on everything from turkey and stuffing, to cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie,” reported Captain Mike Dawson. Tomorrow the eight students on board — Tristan Lewis ’17, Charis Todd ’18, Madison Tregenza ’18, Julia Ludwig ’18, Oscar MacGillivray ’19, Colin MacGillivray ’19, Spencer McLane ’19 and Wyatt Fogg ’19, along with the four professional sailors overseeing them — will celebrate Thanksgiving with the smell of saltwater, and perhaps gravy, in the air.
The crew’s journey began in Tenerife in Spain’s Canary Islands on Nov. 20. This morning the boat was about 460 nautical miles into her 2,800-nautical-mile voyage and had just crossed the Tropic of Cancer. “We are making excellent time so far,” said Captain Dawson, who is working alongside Chief Mate Stu Siddons, Second Mate Alyce Flanagan, and Geronimo Captain and additional watch officer Jill Hughes. “It’s hard to predict exactly when we will arrive,” he said. “It could take 17 days or closer to 20 days.”
Four days into their adventure, the students— three Geronimo veterans and five new to the program — were doing quite well, he reported.
“As you can imagine, a long voyage at sea can be demanding — the variable weather, occasional discomfort, the rigors of standing four hours on and eight hours off, and living in close quarters with 11 other people for several weeks.”
The crew, he added, “has a great attitude and have eagerly embraced these challenges.”
Dawson expected to be solidly in the trade winds within the next several days, and said the boat would make a turn to the west after it reaches the latitude of Grenada. “At this point we are getting close to our halfway point and will have a Thanksgiving celebration, for sure,” he said.
