Natalia's first post

Hi all,
My name is Natalia and this is my last year at Mount Holyoke. I was born in Bulgaria but spent half my life in Budapest, Hungary. I love the water, I've been swimming all my life, and I also like studying about ocean currents. I had my first sailing experience last winter when I sailed from Tahiti to the Marquesas Islands, and to Hawaii aboard the Robert C. Seamans, a beautiful brigantine operated by the Sea Education Association (SEA), Woods Hole. I fell in love with tall ship sailing then and can hardly wait to sail on the Bounty. Even though I am a shellback, I am sure that Neptune won't have mercy on me and I will get seasick again ... will be fun!
