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 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

 

Bound for the St. Lawrence Seaway

The students, on their own, have planned the next leg of our voyage into the St. Lawrence Seaway. As a group they poured over the charts and weather forecasts to come up with a plan to get us to Rimouski, QC. Ensuring we arrive on time and travel the most comfortably given the forecast. Currently Kari and Krysten are on watch and are working through some fickle wind that has them frequently tacking and changing course for us to stay on track.

At the moment we are about 40 nm away from the mouth of the Seaway. Once there the students will not only have to consider wind direction but also current which will affect us greatly as we travel up the river. Just when everyone is getting comfortable with navigating and points of sail this new challenge will be added to the mix.
