Roseway: It's the Glam Life

Most people think that working on Roseway and living in the Caribbean for half the year is a pretty glamorous life. And most days, we will tell you that they're right. Other days, we get pretty dirty for it to feel glamorous. Today, we are getting ready for our transit north to Boston. Supplies are being stocked, compartments sea-stowed, med kits inventoried, bilges cleaned (Martin pictured here in a not-so-glamorous position), rig checked, and mooring tackle retrieved. Sunday morning at first light, all systems are go and Roseway will become self-sufficient for the next 12 days.

Today also marks the official wrap-up of seven months of elementary and junior high school programs on board every day for three-hour lessons, hundreds of island locals and visitors on board for sunset sails, over 1,000 docking proceesdures to and from our mooring every morning and evening, and somewhere around 42 non-working days since November. Complaining? Never. We do all of this because we love teaching and inspiring kids, we value our own development as crew members and individuals, and we respect and adore Roseway.

Stay tuned for updates from sea as we make our way to Bermuda and then Boston.
