"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

Students Underway!

>> Tuesday, February 10, 2009

After a little more than a week of being on the boat, the students on Harvey Gamage are settling into a rhythm. The late night watches are getting easier and the sea sickness is going away. After a three day sail, we are currently anchored off of St. Eustasius. At night, while we were underway, the stars stretched 180 degrees from horizon to horizon. With no land in sight, it was as if we could have been the only ones in the world. We have everything we need right here with us, and there is a feeling that we could just sail forever. It is nice to be on land, however, and today we are going to hike into the crater of the Quill, a dormant volcanoe on the island of St. Eustasius. Soon we will set sail for Dominica.
