"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

Wednesday, October 26, the Harvey Gamage is currently sailing at a pleasant speed of about seven knots. After several days without wind the current pace is a warm welcome from our relying on the ships motors. We had a celebration of sorts yesterday, we were five miles away from the Tropic of Cancer when Captain told us to ‘hove to’ and had a short swim call. During swim call some of my fellow students passed around their goggles to anyone interested in taking a look at the bottom of the ocean. What a sight it was, although there were no schools of tropical fish or reefs to observe, the water was an incredibly beautiful shade of blue. Music blasted in the background from the ship’s speakers and once we all returned on deck, we were treated to some cold punch and chocolate! -- Eli Clare
