Soaking in Savannah

By Rodney Bohner

Roseway is back in Savannah. It is official; the winter is over for the crew aboard Roseway. After a successful program with Ashley Hall students from St. Croix to Charleston marking the end of the St. Croix season, the crew took a brief reprieve before hopping south to our spring home at the Westin Riverfront here in Savannah. Friday will begin our first day of educational programs and sunset sails.

The vessel and crew fared well on the trip north. A few days of cleaning and maintenance washed off the salt and has the old girl primed for a month of programming in Savannah. We will say goodbye to some of the crew while welcoming new members during this period of slight transition from winter to the summer season. We are looking forward to working with local schools during day programs on the Savannah River. If you are traveling through or can make it to Savannah, please join us on a sunset cruise past River Street and the Talmadge Memorial Bridge. The first sunset sail is Friday followed by afternoon sails and evening sails every Saturday and Sunday.

The weather has been a bit dreary upon our arrival. But like the adage says, ‘April showers bring May flowers.’ Quite a productive Spring is lined up looking forward to a busy May after our time here in Savannah transiting north to Boston at the beginning of the month. Plus the additional fresh water rinse never hurts.
