Geronimo is a voyage of self-discovery. Student crew members discover the joys and challenges of life aboard a 69-foot cutter as they sail along one leg of a tour that in 2017-18 will take the boat along the eastern coast of the U.S., from Rhode Island to the Bahamas and back. As they live, learn and explore together, classmates discover what it truly means to be a crew.
We spent Sunday evening ashore at a restaurant called Salt Plage – where we had much-anticipated access to internet and watched the Superbowl. The next morning we set sail for Nevis – an island just a few miles south of St. Kitt’s. Truckie was at the helm as we sailed off the hook. We anchored in the lee of Nevis, just north of Charlestown. After class, we went ashore to explore. We found ice cream, of course, and also some local produce. Before heading back to Geronimo, we relaxed on the beach. Back on board Shivam made bagel pizzas and salad for dinner.
This morning we woke up early and went ashore to hike to the top of Nevis. It took two hours climbing steeply in the amazingly beautiful oceanic rainforest – but we made it to the top. Hull organized our departure and Elise was at the helm as we sailed off the anchor. We are now about 7 nautical miles away from Montserrat, and it is looming large on our port bow. Janna is making chili for dinner. Today is her birthday, but we have decided to postpone the celebration until tomorrow - when the conditions are more amendable to baking.
