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 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.


Captain’s Log

 

Little Harbour to Tilloo Cay

Our first stop in Little Harbour was a cave. The first cave was more of an overhang, but the second cave had lots of interesting caverns and even a population of bats. Next we walked out to an abandoned lighthouse that was built in the late 1800's and watched the waves crash on to the rocky shore. Back into the small settlement we had a look at the art gallery and foundry, and stopped for some food and cold drinks. 

Back on board Lekha was the JWO sailing us out of the Lynyard Cay anchorage - and she did a great job short tacking us through a narrow channel (16 tacks in total). She handed the watch over to Lilly R. who sailed us up through Tilloo Bank and on to our anchorage at Tilloo Cay. A team effort (Celia, T.J. and Lilly R.) put together dinner of ravioli, hamburgers and salad.
