Summer 2015

Martorell Crespo Photo Hi, there! My Eagle summer experience included sailing to Key West, Virginia, the Bahamas and Staten Island. It was so much fun! Not only were the port calls a great adventure but just being on Eagle was, too. We had many damage control trainings in order to get qualified and drills such as man overboard. Although it was sometimes challenging, it was important to learn. Many of us were able to climb up to the royals; we had to memorize all of the pin rails and sails and then were tested on them. It was an interesting experience!


Overall, Eagle was not at all bad and the port calls were super fun. Between trying to get qualified and taking tests, most importantly, we got to know our classmates better and made new friends. It was a great opportunity to talk to those people who we didn’t really know yet. In the end, I loved my Eagle experience and all the new and stronger friendships I made.
