"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Wild horses at Dungeness Ruins
Cumberland Island, Georgia
Ocean Classroom Semester students aboard Harvey Gamage are currently off Cape Canaveral in the Gulf Stream. They are expected in Fernadina Beach, Florida on Friday morning. When they arrive they'll check in through customs, provision the boat, and students will head ashore to get their land legs back and eat some long-awaited ice cream! They'll take a hike to Fort Clinch State Park where they visit the remains of masonry forts that once ran the entire length of the seaboard during the Civil War. After Fernadina Beach they'll head to Cumberland Island National Seashore, Georgia's largest barrier island. It boasts stunning landscapes, 20 miles of pristine beach (plenty of space to stretch passage-weary legs), palmetto forests, live oaks, wild horses and armadillos. While ashore, students and crew will have some cookouts, do some hiking, and study the marsh estuary. 

Duryea from Schooner Virginia

Schooner Virginia crew is making their way through the Windward Passage and are currently off the northeast corner of Cuba. They'll soon break free of the Passage and make their way into the Old Bahama Channel. From there they are bound for Fernadina Beach, Florida.
