Students return from Citadel at Sea sailing-abroad tour
Citadel cadets and students learned about leadership and teamwork while studying, living aboard and helping crew Charleston's iconic Spirit of South Carolina schooner during the college's first Citadel at Sea program. The semester program on the Spirit began Jan. 18 and concluded on April 18, when the ship returned to the Charleston Maritime Center.
During the trip, students sailed to the Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Puerto Rico. Citadel professors met the ship at the ports-of-call to provide tours and instruction, as well as to lead the students on service-learning experiences.
