How to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in this world is what New Horizons is all about. Please check out our website at We provide educational opportuinities for at-risk children in Southwest Florida. We are able to provide humanitarian aid to our Caribbean neighbors with our 68-foot cargo schooner, "Star of the Sea." The schooner is also used as a teaching tool for the "Call to Adventure" program that mentors young men at sea.

July 20-July 24

We arrived early in the morning after a long night of 10-12ft seas and high winds. After clearing customs in Mathew Town we anchored and went and checked on the 7 tons of food that was being held by customs. Returning to the boat our weather router informed us that a tropical wave was headed our way and we needed to seek shelter immediately. I was fortunate to meet Captain Stephen Fawkes, marine superintendent for Morton Salt and Mayor of Mathew Town. He had recently installed a 10,000 lb. anchor and mooring ball in Man O War Bay and we were welcome to use it. The following morning we put out our storm gear and rode out the storm when it arrived the following day.
