As we leave Falmouth Harbor, Antigua behind, it is hard to believe we are sailing the last leg of our journey. It feels like yesterday we were splashing around the waters of St. Croix before embarking on the SSV Corwith Cramer.

Mandoo’s Friends

Courtney Dunham, Mount Holyoke College

Greetings from C-289 in Grenada! We had an action-packed day going on a tour of the island! We started off our adventure with a stretching exercise led by Cody, our steward, in the marina parking lot. We then met our tour guide, Mandoo Seales, and boarded the air-conditioned van (emphasis on the air conditioning).

Ahoy Dear Reader! We find ourselves in fine weather a day’s sail south of the Virgin Islands and already immersed in a glorious world of oceanic wonders! On Monday, we sailed along the north coast of St. Croix under topsail and staysails as the sun sank below the horizon.
