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.
Rounding the CapesOn departing Annapolis, we tacked down the bay and cleared Cape Henry at the Chesapeake Bay entrance just after sunset. The wind was light as we motorsailed down the coast on our way toward Cape Hatteras. We enjoyed a dinner on deck sailing along in a nice breeze last night on our way toward Cape Lookout. Over the course of the night we have made good progress sailing south in some lively conditions on a close reach. Although we had thoughts of stopping in Beaufort, North Carolina – the forecast made sense for us to continue on toward Charleston. The crew has been handling what will be our longest passage of the trip well and they are looking forward to our arrival. We just cleared Frying Pan Shoals off of Cape Fear and had some dolphins swim along with flying fish. Hoping to arrive to Charleston some time overnight.
