"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

Charleston to New York and Beyond

>> Wednesday, May 22, 2013

            I believe we all learned why Cape Fear, Cape Lookout, and Cape Hatteras are some of the most feared Capes in North America. A voyage that should have taken five days took twelve. Waves we recorded peaked at twelve feet, we saw wind gusts at 35 miles per hour and we experienced squall after squall. This will probably go down as one of my favorite passages since that was something I will probably never do again. The satisfaction of seeing the skyline of New York for the first time in three months, and the first time ever for some, is something we all truly earned. As the trip winds down, we all realize how far we have come and how this amazing experience is something we will remember our entire lives. I really look forward to the week and a half where we sail around, no classes and just enjoy being on watch together before returning to our normal lives and the hard earned summer that awaits us.
