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

 

New York City

We slept in on Sunday and spent the morning on board doing schoolwork. We went ashore for lunch, then came back to Geronimo to prepare to get underway and have Marine Science class. The wind was light as we entered the East River just after sunset and had a fair current taking us through Hell Gate, down the east side of Manhattan and on to New York Harbor. The views of the skyline were just about perfect. It was a clear night with a bright moon overhead. TJ was at the helm taking us from Hell Gate to the Statue of Liberty, where we held station to take in a final view of the city.  At around 2130 or so we used the last of the fair current to take us out of New York Harbor. Lilly was on the helm from Liberty Island to Staten Island, and then Bridgit brought us under the Verrazzano Narrows bridge and out through Ambrose Channel.  We sailed south down the New Jersey coast overnight, and at dawn we are just north of Atlantic City - bound for the Delaware Bay and the Chesapeake Bay.
