Proctor's Ocean Classroom has arrived safely in St. Croix after a ten day passage from Charleston, South Carolina aboard the Schooner Roseway! While written reflections by students on the journey will eventually articulate the magnitude of this accomplishment, video footage captures perhaps more than words can at this point in time.
Above, students celebrate pulling into port in St. Croix by enjoying a nice swim in tropical waters! They are thankful to see dry land for the first time since leaving Charleston!
Below, students navigate the Roseway using sextants in the middle of the Atlantic. THIS is what experiential learning is all about!
During a ten day passage, of course fun needs to be had on board! The crew celebrated Halloween as well as Breast Cancer Awareness by having a Pink Day!
Lastly, a window into the daily work students must complete while crewing the ship and a few student reflections on pulling into port in St. Croix.
Congratulations to Proctor's Ocean Classroom crew and the Roseway for arriving in St. Croix! Three more weeks of living and learning aboard the Roseway before these students transition back to life on campus in Andover! Enjoy the warm weather, crystal waters, and sunshine while you have it!
