Meet summer intern, Halcyon, the newest member of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Race Team

When I was 8 years old my family moved to New York City from Saint Lucia. While moving to New York from a beautiful island in the Caribbean, I never thought that I’ll see the water again. That was until I started my freshman year at the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School, where they taught me that New York City is surrounded by 600 miles of coastline, which I needed to explore.

I started sailing on tall ships my sophomore year of high school, thanks to my Vessel Operations teacher, Captain Aaron Singh. I’ve had the opportunity to sail on Spirit of Massachusetts and Schooner Pioneer.

This past summer, I was hired as a deckhand on 1893, Schooner Lettie G. Howard, after a long winter restoration period.

Now I’m looking forward to some new adventures as a TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Intern, before the start of my senior year at New York Harbor School.
