Into the bay we sailed. Wind so intense it could capsize the unprepared sailor; I was greeted to the Dominican Republic.

Class Afloat, what a strange concept it is. Why choose to spend nine months on a sailboat, with people you don’t even know, being seasick, depriving yourself of well-needed sleep, having blocks of 15 consecutive days of school and being away from your family for all this time? Precisely for all these reasons!

Picture this: A dark night in the lively capital of Barbados. Street lights flaring orange and white with the odd flicker every now and then. Taxis, lined up at the port waiting for customers and blasting their speakers to drown out the Sunday night parties.

You may think me crazy, but I assure you that I am not. It’s just that these people around me seem so much bigger than they are sometimes. With their great noises and unending motion, their motor-run mouths and the space they take. When you truly stop, breathe, and stare, there’s something in the disorder that sweeps you away, pulling you into its current. They do not sway like the ship on days of heavy wind. They vibrate. Oftentimes, I along with them, buzz at high frequency. It’s how you stay afloat here.

Celebrating the bond between Floaties
A Floatie: an inflatable object on which a person may sit or recline while floating in water. Or, in Class Afloat speak, a friend, crew mate and companion with whom you have shared life-changing experiences and who keeps you afloat, making you feel at ease, safe and confident in your own skin.
