Geronimo

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.


Captain’s Log

 

Waiting for Clearer Skies

Geronimo is securely anchored in the shadow of Cape Lookout light waiting for a front to pass by, after which we will round Cape Hatteras and press on north. Being Cinco de Mayo, we had a Mexican themed day in the galley with Chris cooking fajitas and sapodillas for dinner. Earlier in the day we had a marine science class where we broke out sextants for the first time and the concept of local apparent noon and how to find your latitude using the sun was introduced. It was also a momentous day as Hallie and Zoey finished all their non marine science course work. The first two students of the trip to do so. 

Dinner clean up has just finished and most of the students are playing cards together or working on their school work. As soon as the weather clears we will be back underway.
