"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

Gamage Update May 5, 2013

>> May 5, 2013


As of yesterday, Capt. Flansburg has decided to give up on the effort to get to Beaufort as his forward progress against contrary, strong winds is not successful.  He was hove to (holding station) awaiting for the wind to shift as forecast. He reports that the crew and students are in good spirits and working well together.  The plan is to be bound to NYC via Sandy Hook when the wind shifts.  

Having just checked on the weather and ship's position this morning, the wind has already shifted and they are on their way towards Cape Hatteras.  As the wind shifts to the south the seas will die down, and once around Cape Hatteras, Gamage and her crew will be protected from the southerly swell.  

Fair Winds and Following Sea to our Crew Aboard the Harvey Gamage!!!
