What a first week aboard for class C-264. We began in St. Croix, where we conducted orientation training and a few nice field trips in Christiansted under the guidance of Dr. Craig Marin and Dr. Jeff Schell. After a short sail, we anchored in St. John, and completed even more orientation training! In St. John, students and crew got a chance to check out the Annaberg plantation ruins and conduct a snorkel biodiversity survey in Waterlemon Cay, where the highlight was a nurse shark sighting.
