"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

March 19th, 2009 Grand Cayman Island

Finally! Underway. Done with impacted wisdom teeth and ship surveys we sailed out from Sto. Domingo bound west hoping for the Bay Islands Honduras .the wind was fair but very light so we made slow but steady progress to the west the students quickly regained their sealegs and started earning aloft clearances many were challenged by going aloft for the first time facing a fear of heights on a moving ship is no joke but once back on the relatively firm deck they all agree that it is a very good experience . After a few days I put into practice my Jack of all trades and pulled Sally’s one stitch from her now healed wisdom tooth extraction. She didn’t even flinch . meanwhile the ships radar decided to give us some trouble not a big concern for the Caribbean but being an important tool we made an unscheduled stop in Grand Cayman which has turned out to be a top rated stop from most of the students the amount of sealife seen and coral reef experience not to mention the wonderful folks here was incredible. But Tempus Fugit so we are bound away once again tomorrow for the west and hope for yet more and better adventures in the future as our time in the tropics comes to an end.

So till next time Fair Winds Capt. Flansburg.
