"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

At anchor Gallows bay St Eustatias.Well this last week has been great we had a good overnight sail from St Thomas to the BVI with plenty of tacking for the students to get to know Gamage the first few tacks can be frightening propositions for new hands with the crew shouting instructions sheets flogging and the boat tossing about needless to say the students are really getting the hang of sailing Gamage (no surprise) and they are now using only one watch at a time(7 or 8 students) to handle sails.
I am, as usual struggling to learn all the students names and something about them . I am constantly amazed at the amount of talent aboard artists, writers ,sailors, musicians, jokers . people with big dreams its so heartening to look into our future and see these people there .
Today we went up to the Quill an extinct volcano with a rainforest in the crater a very cool experience. There were a lot or Hemit crabs working up the hill except when we startled them and they would roll down again.
Well this crew is coming together nicely working very well to make Gamage go!
Next we are bound toward Dominica.Fair winds Capt. Flansburg
