An Atlantic crossing is a unique adventure that the majority of the world will never experience, much less on a tall ship with a crew composed largely of 16 to 18 year old students.

First, I just heard people running. Obviously it was Will and Easton, they were coming up to me saying they had signed me up to help with a hot tub, without asking me. I didn’t really get how they wanted to build a hot tub….. on deck…. with ocean water. We mentioned the hot tub a couple times over the next few days, but didn’t really do anything to prepare, we waited until the last minute to start it, and we had no idea what we were doing. We ended up postponing for about 3 days in a row.

As spring arrives, we know that many students are in the midst of making final decisions regarding where to go and what to do next year. For graduating students, this can mean accepting a position at a university or college or taking some time-off to figure out what exactly the future has in store.

Harvard University recently released a statement encouraging admitted students to defer their enrolment in favour of a Gap Year. In lieu of graduating high school only to rush straight into college or university, the Ivy League university has started encouraging students to take a year off and travel, pursue a special project or spend time in another meaningful way.

Why should you spend a semester or year at sea with class afloat?
Great question. And we're dying to tell you! Join us at our next virtual information session, taking place in May including a quick Skype presentation followed by a casual Q&A with our Director of Admissions. We'll answer all your questions and share all the reasons (cough cough looks great on university applications) you should seriously consider spending a semester or full year at sea with Class Afloat.

I am writing the beginning of my blog sitting in the mess on the 23rd around lunchtime. All around me, people are talking, laughing and watching movies. The atmosphere is relaxed and cheerful given that our midterm exams are behind us and parent port is right in front of us! It really feels like the last day before Spring Break. It is safe to say that we are all imagining our upcoming reunion with our loved ones. The past seven weeks have passed unbelievably fast and part of me still does not fully realize that it is the coast of Cuba that I am seeing through the porthole.

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