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

 

Great Guana Cay

We set sail from Green Turtle Cay on Friday, bound for Great Guana Cay through the Whale Cay Channel. T.J. was JWO and sailed us off the anchor and then short-tacked his way through the narrow channel. Katherine was JWO for the next watch bringing us in through a tight channel requiring many course changes and careful navigation, before sailing us up to the anchor at Fisher's Bay on Great Guana Cay. Both T.J. and Katherine had some difficult and stressful watches, with lots of things to think about and the wind blowing over 20 knots at times, , and both of them performed really well under pressure. We stayed at our anchorage for two nights, taking the opportunity to get some schoolwork done, have a marine science class on sea turtles, watch a movie and explore the island.
