"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

Santo Domingo to Vieques

>> Saturday, November 16, 2013

Twenty-five tacks and six days later, we're finally anchored in Sun Bay, Vieques. White sand beaches and clear blue water greeted us early in the morning. This past week consisted of taking our final exams. All of our hard work academically finally paid off, and now the weight of studying is off our shoulders. These last few days will bring us to Culebra and San Juan, and eventually back home to Boston. We are all excited to have some colder weather, but leaving Gamage will be the hardest part of this voyage.

     Some of us however, aren't leaving Harvey Gamage permanently. This trip, despite only being two and a half months, has made a lasting impression on us. Enough of an impression to make a few of us want to come back and work on Gamage as either a deckhand or educator. The trip will end in a week for some of us, but for the others it will only be a matter of time before we are "back on deck" ("Back on deck!").
