"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

Sint Eustatius

>> Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Sint Eustatius has been good to us, providing out student crew with a number of firsts...

First foreign port of call, and the first passports stamps that accompany that. 

First shore time and the cold, sweet, delicious Tings (grapefruit soda, for the uninitiated) that come with that.

First green flash, which occurred last night on a clear, beautiful evening just before the supper bell was rung. It was a fine prelude to Lizzy's fantastic baked ziti supper.

And our first pod of dolphins, which shared our approach to the anchorage here in Gallows Bay. 

The students have had a fine time here on the "Golden Rock," but are anxious to get back to sea and continue this great voyage. They've sent postcards, and are eager to get on a phone or online soon to share their adventures!
