Lessons Learned on The Ocean

Waking up to a beautiful sunrise over a calm ocean, seeing the stars over the open sea with no light pollution, and having to eat soup when the boat is rolling over 10 ft swells are just some things I have had to get used to when living at sea. My name is Joe Ribbins, or as my school friends call me—Ribz. Thanks to Lakefield, I am now sailing on a 70 meter (200+ ft) tall ship to 23 different ports in 20 countries and will cross the equator and the Atlantic Ocean twice.
