We were awoken by the calming voice of Giovanni Vigilante at 0030. After scrambling our way into the usual five layers of clothing, topped off by our foul weather gear and trusty harnesses, we headed up to the deck to join the rest of B watch and begin the Dawn Watch.

Early this morning, we helped to set the sails and prepare to reel in the anchor. Though we are all still inexperienced, it’s so thrilling to know that we’re genuinely contributing to the success of the ship’s voyage.
