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.
Back in the Bay
Thursday morning we headed ashore again but this time to Vineyard Haven. Many students indulged in some ice cream before returning to Geronimo. Shortly after lunch we were underway for the Elizabeth Islands. We short tacked our way west before cutting through Quicks Hole to Cuttyhunk. Gray cooked chicken fried rice for dinner and everyone helped with dishes so that there would be time to watch a movie afterwards. Ben and Max made popcorn and we settled in for the night.
As soon as chores were completed this morning, we set the mainsail and sailed off of the anchor for Newport. With the wind out of the south it was a quick trip back to the bay. We are now past Newport and on our way to an anchorage on the east side of Prudence Island. Hopefully we’ll be anchored and have all the sails put away before the rain sets in.
