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.
Hope Town, Elbow Cay
On Friday morning Celia sailed us off the anchor and then we moved into a round of "Chase the Buoy," where the student crew take turns retrieving a small buoy tossed overboard completely under sail. They all successfully performed this with Katherine and Lily C. earning the fastest times. We continued to an anchorage further north and spent the afternoon relaxing, swimming and making a short trip to Tahiti Beach on Elbow Cay.
This morning Lily C. sailed us off the anchor and we then commenced our final exam review in the form of Marine Science Jeopardy. T.J., Lekha, Pickles and Katherine did a noon sight of the sun to determine our latitude. After lunch we went into Hope Town to see the lighthouse and explore town. Back on board the student crew had been hitting the books in preparation for their final exam.
