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

 

Island Hopping

Our day started anchored off of Cuttyhunk. After chores were completed we piled into Thunder Chief, our small boat, to head ashore. There, time was spent checking out the small community and the few shops in town. By lunch time we were back aboard Geronimo and hauling back the anchor. 

There was little to no breeze today so we decided to motor over to Vineyard Haven on Martha’s Vineyard. After about 3 hours we pulled into the bay and dropped anchor just outside of the inner harbor. Shortly thereafter we went over to the schooner Alabama and were given a tour of the 91year old ship. From here we headed onto the island to spend an hour walking around town. Now we are back aboard Geronimo. Miles and Kelvin are busy in the galley making tacos for dinner. The others are on deck chatting and enjoying the perfect weather. Once the guys are out of the galley Sophie and Cate are planning to make chocolate chip cookies for dessert. The remainder of the evening will likely be spent playing cards and hanging out.
