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.
We made it to Cumberland Island on Thursday morning and slept in to recover from the overnight watches. After lunch we ventured out to the beach for swimming and relaxing. The balance of the day was spent catching up on school work and watching a movie on board.
The folks at Greyfield, where we were docked, kindly offered to load us up into a truck and show us around the island. If you ever get a chance to visit – it is an amazing place. We drove down to the ruins of the Carnegie mansion Dungeness on the south end of the island, made a stop at Sea Camp and continued all the way north to Plum Orchard. TJ made cheese tortellini with meat sauce for dinner and we had time ashore with phones before our morning departure toward the Bahamas.
