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

 

Underway

Our day began with a full morning of safety orientation, followed by taking on fuel and a quick lunch before  departing the dock. TJ was at the helm and steered us out of the channel and into the bay. We set the mainsail and jib, shut down the engine and were sailing. 

We performed a dozen or so tacks making our way south in a light  breeze. Everyone had an opportunity to steer and handle lines as we perfected our tacking evolution. 

In the late afternoon, we sailed up to our anchorage off of Bristoli and had our first swim call. Celia was the cook today, and made us a dinner of cheese ravioli and meat sauce, with salad. A game of Uno, followed by some more on-board orientation and then study hall rounded off the evening.
