Despite the abnormal daily schedule and the ever-cloudy weather, I do feel like I have begun to get more into a groove.
What a fun and exciting day aboard the Seamans!

Today has been an exciting day- to say the least- aboard the Seamans.

Today was Line Chase! Each watch lined up, with A Watch on the port side of the quarterdeck, B Watch next to them, and C Watch on the starboard side.

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!

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