Despite the abnormal daily schedule and the ever-cloudy weather, I do feel like I have begun to get more into a groove.

Today marks 10 days underway on the Seamans, and we’ve already come a long way, emotionally and physically.

It’s crazy to think that we’ve only been at sea for nine days! After a few watch rotations, everyone is pretty much settled into their 18 hour daily routine. As we head further into the Gyre the air temperature is slowly beginning to rise, hopefully we have some sunny days ahead!

A week into our trip and things are going well. I never got seasick at all, and I sleep much better in my bunk than I expected.

As you may know, we haven’t had much wind the first week. We started motoring, which is very boring in terms of sail handling.

After a few days of total cloud cover, the sun (and moon!) finally made an appearance during morning watch.
