Reef Bay, St. John

Chloe M.

Last night, the girls slept in deck. It was gorgeous out, with all the stars. Orion was especially bright and beautiful. After a good anchor watch from 5-6 with Lila, we slept well in our hammocks. In the morning, we shuttled a couple minutes to the beach on Maho Bay, and Kerri d…

Buck Island, St. Croix

Lila B.

Dear voyage log, What a day on Buck Island, St. Croix. Never would I have ever thought that I would get the chance to snorkel in the beautiful reefs of Buck Island, one of the prettiest places on Earth. We started our day getting underway back to the mainland of St. Croix to dro…

Protestant Cay, Christiansted, St. Croix

Billy B.

Finals day! This day on Roseway, a day that many of us have been dreading for a lot of the second half of the voyage, marks the end of regular classes and homework assignments that have caused us to stay up through countless sleepy hours of the night. After a wonderful yet chilly…

Protestant Cay, Christiansted, St. Croix

Madeline B.

This morning as we sailed the Caribbean seas I spotted St. Croix at the helm and I was so indescribably comforted. It was a feeling I have never completely experienced. Because finally, after a whole 58 days of scrubbing salon floors with a rocking boat and hauling halyards in th…

Culebra, Puerto Rico

Peter K.

Today we spent the day in Culebra. We woke up Thor morning in between many different islands but the biggest is them was Culebra. We started off with a swim call at 0700. As we moved into chores the only thing on our minds was the reef and the beach just across the cove. After a …

Atlantic Ocean, North of Puerto Rican coast


This morning was probably the greatest one so far. I had the dawn watch from usual 0400 to 0800 and it was just so much fun. Starting with climbing out of the fish to see the glowing Puerto Rican coast: the sight itself brought me so much joy after not seeing land for almost ten …

Atlantic Ocean

Cedar K.

Dear voyage log, It is absolutely crazy to think that there are only two weeks until this is all over, it feels impossible in fact. Waking up I expected just a normal day, or at least as average as a day on Roseway can be. Boy was I wrong though. The day began with the morning w…

Atlantic Ocean


Today we began for me at 0000. The midnight to 0400 watch can be challenging to stay awake for but what always makes night watches fly by is gazing at the stars. On a crystal clear night miles from land the stars are more than heavenly. Last night I learned that Orion's belt poin…
