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.
Underway to East Abaco CreeksMonday started off with a late wake-up and T.J.'s lemon pancakes. After class we went ashore on the small island of Man-O-War Cay. Ice cream, a little shopping, relaxing in the shade and swimming at the beach rounded out the morning. Back on board for lunch, then we were underway to an anchorage about 8 n.m. south. Celia did a solid job sailing us off the anchor and short tacking us around Point Set Rock, then passed it off to Lily C. just south of Marsh Harbour. Lily sailed us south to the west of Lubber's Bank and executed too many short tacks to count sailing us over a narrow cut across the banks. Once clear of the bank, she brought us up to the anchor under sail just off Lubber's Quarters on the east side of the Sea of Abaco. T.J. and Mr. Brown were secretly cooking a dinner in the galley. When it came time for dinner, everyone was seated up on deck and they unveiled their creation. It was a large pizza-sized burger with cheese and "weaved" bacon! Lily C. named it the "manly monster" and it was definitely a hit.
This morning we sailed over to the Snake Creek under jib alone while dining on Celeste's breafast burritos. With full bellies, we are now prepared for a full day of turtle tagging.
