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.
Fowl Cay National Park & Man-O-War Cay
Bridgit was our first of four JWO's today and she did a fine job sailing us off the anchor and executing several tacks on our way toward Fowl Cay. She passed the reigns on to Celeste who carefully brought us up to our anchorage, under sail, in the lee of Fowl Cay. After lunch we set out to explore the coral reefs on the windward side. We saw healthy corals, too many fish to count and even a Hawksbill sea turtle. Our third JWO of the day was Lekha, and she sailed us off the anchor toward Man-O-War Cay under a reefed main and jib. Lilly R. then took over and short-tacked up to our anchorage where we now comfortably sit for the night. The balance of the afternoon was spent taking saltwater baths followed by a freshwater rinse, cutting T.J.'s hair (several people were involved) and getting back into schoolwork. As I write this, Celia is making spaghetti and meatballs for dinner.
