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.
Our last evening in the Francis Bay anchorage in St. John. U.S.V.I. was a peaceful one. The next morning, Truckie sailed us off the mooring and navigated us through the Narrows and through Current Hole - bucking 3+ knots of current both ways - on our way to Culebra. The wind gave out about halfway there during Janna's watch - but then filled back in enough for Hannah to sail us in to Ensenada Honda and up to the anchor.
This morning we had our last Marine Science class on mangrove ecosystems - while tied up in the mangroves in Thunderchief (our inflatable boat). After class, ashore to explore and find lunch - then off to Flamenco Beach for body-surfing and enjoying this spectacular beach. Back on board. Dinner - chicken, green beans and asparagus - is just about ready.
