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.
Bight of Old Robinson
On the south end of Abacos is a small bay called the Bight of Old Robinson. Bridgit sailed us down to a more accessible anchorage, just a few miles away. Our first stop was a huge sandbar and a shallow creek where we searched for turtles without any luck. Celeste managed to get buried in the sand and Lekha ventured out with Mr. Brown and Ms. Flanagan to look for lobster. We managed to get two really large ones that eventually became part of dinner. After noon sights (determining latitude by measuring the angle of the sun), we ventured off into a creek which had several blue holes. We found two and snorkeled over top of them. We also tried to tag a few turtles, but the glare from the sun low on the horizon made it too difficult. Back on board Celeste brought us back to Lynyard Cay to a more protected anchorage for the night and led the charge with Katherine to make spaghetti tacos with salad and lobster on the side.
Lilly R. made breakfast this morning of sausage, bagels, hash browns and pineapple. We are off to explore Little Harbour in a few minutes and plan to sail north to Tiloo Cay for the evening.
