Exploring the Streets of Cartagena, Colombia

Exploring the Streets of Cartagena, Colombia

Speaking for majority of the crew on board, including myself, we were all enraptured to arrive in Cartagena. Strong winds had us sailing an average of six knots an hour with only the forestay sail set, although as we usually do when we arrive early, we didn’t have the opportunity to drop anchor. The past sail from the Dominican Republic had felt much longer than an eight day sail because we had no other choice than to slow down as much as possible and even detour to incorporate an additional two hundred nautical miles into the voyage. It felt as if it was the epitome of being so close, yet so far from something.

Volunteering in the Dominican Republic

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

" If home is where the heart is, then this is my home."

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!
