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.
Trophy in hand, I can now announce that Geronimo and her crew took first place in the modern vessel class of Sail Training International’s race from Boston to Prince Edward Island. Sail Training International annually holds a race series that promotes camaraderie and competition between sailing vessels small and large whose mission is youth development through sailing. This race had Geronimo competing against vessels from Finland, Germany, England and Latvia with Geronimo being the only US representative in its class. Geronimo also had the distinction of having the youngest crew on board of any vessel participating. The race was sailed in challenging conditions with strong winds and two days of very limited visibility. Being the students first week on board the boat they all adapted incredibly well and remained focused and upbeat for the duration of the race. This accomplishment, of out performing these other vessels who routinely race in these events is something all on board can take pride in. Congratulations to Vivian, Kari, Kenta, Mac, Natalie, and Krysten for their success!
