Spring 2019 Semester Begins Today!

Students Gap Year Study Abroad

Wednesday was a big day in the world of S/Y Ocean Star,

as she just received her spring semester students in Antigua!

So far the students have spent their days getting to know O-Star, settling into their new boat responsibilities, exploring the historic Nelson’s Dockyard, hiking to the tide pools above the Pillars of Hercules, and getting to know their fellow shipmates.

Over the next 80 days, these students will sail, round-trip, over 1,000 nautical miles from Antigua to Grenada. We can’t wait to continue sharing all of the incredible experiences aboard O-Star over the coming weeks, but for now, the crew is busy welcoming and acclimating the students to their new floating home and there is certainly work to be done. Welcome aboard, shipmates!

Be sure to follow along with the daily, student-written trip logs from Ocean Star as they explore the Lesser Antilles!
