Parents' Weekend was a huge success! Students were given ample time to re-connect with the families and are now rejeuvenated and off again, heading up the eastern seaboard: Harvey Gamage is currently off Cape Fear with a long-range forecast for contrary winds. They are bound for Beaufort, North Carolina. Schooner Virginia had to re-route and return to Charleston, South Carolina this week for mechanical repairs. Departure from Charleston is unknown at this time. Students will continue with studies and exploration of this beautiful southern city. Amistad is off the north coast of Cuba bound for Charleston. All are well.
Meanwhile, back in Portland, Westward was transferred from her winter berth to her summer dockage at Portland Yacht Services.
