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

 

Long Island Sound

We continued on past Watch Hill and into Fisher's Island Sound, continuing down the bay with a fresh WSW'ly breeze. We sailed up to an anchorage just off Kelsey Point on the north side of Long Island Sound. It was a full day of sailing from sunrise to sunset and everyone went to bed early. 

Celeste made oatmeal and fruit salad for breakfast,  and we sailed off the anchor with a building NE'ly breeze. Making our way west, we somehow managed to stay dry and made fast progress down Long Island Sound - averaging somewhere around 8 knots. We sailed into Oyster Bay and picked up a mooring and were treated to hot showers and a really nice meal at Seawanhaka Yacht Club by Bridgit's family (thanks again!). 

We are spending the morning at the mooring with study hall and class.  Our plan is to catch the  fair tide through the East River and into New York City is this evening before heading south down the coast.
