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

 

Manjack Cay

Lilly R. started off the day with pancakes and fruit for breakfast. We then sailed off the anchor and had a Marine Science quiz as we sailed down to Manjack Cay with a light easterly breeze. With patience, we managed to sail the entire way and we sailed up to the anchor around lunch. 

After lunch we set up camp, so to speak, on the beach and commenced sea turtle tagging. The Geronimo program has been involved in a long-term green sea turtle population study in cooperation with the Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research at the University of Florida. Our first day out, and we captured, measured, tagged and released four green sea turtles in just a few hours. Lekha, Lily C. and T.J. each captured a turtle - but it was a real team effort. 

Back on board we had a bagel pizzas and salad for dinner, followed by a rousing game of Apples to Apples. Looking forward to exploring Manjack Cay on land and snorkeling on the reef tomorrow.
