Proctor’s Ocean Classroom program has departed Charleston, South Carolina and is currently in transit to St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. The nearly two-week voyage across the open sea is by far the longest of the term, and while the ship is in daily contact with the school via satellite phone, we will not be receiving Ship’s Logs updates until their arrival in St. Croix.

Our trip to Barcelona commenced on a sunny Wednesday morning. We boarded the bus, which shuttles travelers and commuters between Segovia and Madrid. Once we arrived in Madrid, the crowded and confusing metro brought us to the train station. The journey to Barcelona was easy, although we were all slightly anxious about what lay ahead.
Proctor’s Ocean Classroom program met up with director Brooks Bicknell ‘77 in Savannah, Georgia this weekend.

Proctor's Ocean Classroom crew has surpassed the 30 day mark on their eight week voyage down the eastern seaboard to the US Virgin Islands. The changing of watches has become routine, the roll of the deck as the schooner Roseway cuts through the Atlantic second nature. Read this past week's Ship's Logs below.
Our first trip to Madrid was a success! An eventful day of history lessons, fútbol games, bus rides, and lots of laughs. The day began mid-morning when the group met at the bus station where we were greeted by Ryan and Laura. We discussed the itinerary and the game plan for our excursion. We had an action-packed day ahead of us. The whole group was so excited we could barely sit still for the hour-long bus ride from Segovia to Madrid. When we arrived we were instantly introduced to the long confusing metro system. Julia ‘21 and Ollie ‘21 were in charge of navigating our paths to get to the center of town. Through the process of elimination, we successfully arrived!
Proctor Academy's Ocean Classroom program is more than a third of the way through their eight week journey down the eastern seaboard, and eventually to St. Croix.

Read more from our students in the entries below.
The twenty-one students aboard Schooner Roseway on Proctor's Ocean Classroom program have begun their third week at sea. They are settling into routines, learning how to live in close quarters with their classmates, and adjusting to interrupted sleep, middle of the night watches, and the unfiltered beauty of the open ocean. Read the past week's Ship's Logs from Roseway below.
Last week, the Proctor en Segovia group walked part of the Camino de Santiago, a little under forty miles to be exact. The Camino de Santiago is a path that starts in France and ends on the coast of Galicia. The journey across Spain is walked for many reasons. Some people do it as a physical challenge and/or to take time to reflect on an aspect of their lives, but, traditionally, the Camino de Santiago is walked as a religious pilgrimage.
