"I absolutely love the first day": Captain Jill Hughes aboard Geronimo
Join Erin as she talks to Captain Jill Hughes with the tall ship Geronimo of St. Georges School in Middletown, RI. www.stgeorges.edu We start in Buffalo, New York, and sail to Greenland, the Caribbean, South Pacific and the Mediterranean. Along the way, we discover that Captain Hughes does not have an aptitude for being a galley cook but will always give 100%. She discusses working with high school students on a 70' vessel and what we can learn from the Danish tall ships. I also mention the Welland Canal, again, and tell a story about a bear on board a tall ship.
