Our Last Parent Port in Cuba

Our Last Parent Port in Cuba

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.

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.

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

A Tribute to Class Afloat Ships

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.
