The Rhythms of Passage

Feb 24, 2011


Location: Underway to Bonaire
Author: Kristine Faloon
Today we tied up any loose ends in Grenada in preparation for our longest passage of the trip thus far. In the morning we had an oceanography quiz and some time to write papers and then a marine biology class. After lunch the boat was abuzz with passage prep, which we finished in record time and actually left a little early from our anchorage in Prickly Bay, Grenada. Once we passed the relative shelter of the harbor and set out toward open water, Argo began to roll with the rhythm of the seas and the setting of the sails by her practiced crew. Thus we began our passage to Bonaire, our watch teams took over responsibility of the boat and we settled in to the rhythm of passage.
