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.
Tuesday morning we sailed off the anchor and had a lively and speedy sail back west toward Puerto Rico on the heels of a frontal passage. Just after lunch we sailed up to the anchor on an island just a few miles from our marina. Our last night at anchor, we had the anchorage all to ourselves and enjoyed a peaceful, starry night.
Yesterday morning we departed at dawn for Puerto del Rey Marina. Once alongside we commenced Field Day - which is our end-of-the-trip thorough cleaning of Geronimo. The crew did a great job and we spent the balance of the afternoon enjoying showers and getting in touch with home, before heading out to our last dinner together.
