A 24 Hour Journey

Steve Kielar, A-Watch, 3rd Assistant Scientist

Historic Seaports

Greetings!
I would like to take you on a 24 hour journey through the lens of the 3rd Assistant Scientist, and a proud member of A -Watch. We had the evening watch (1900-0100) meaning our August started at midnight. We were sailing 9 knots around Cape Vincent and the stars were amazing.

Starry Night

Protecting the Phoenix Islands

Another beautiful sunny day in PIPA! As we sail into August, we’re savoring the last days of our journey in this incredible place. With less than two weeks to go, everyone is working hard on projects and perfecting their terrible tans. In a little less than two days we will arrive at our last Phoenix Island, Nikumaroro. We are all excited to do some last minute snorkeling and explore our last stop; if it’s anything like Kanton and Orona we’re in for a treat!
