Too many things to look at

Now that we have come back into the California Current and gone past multiple marine sanctuaries, I find it very hard not to spend as much time as I can on deck.

Toes in the sand

Today was our relaxed full day anchored at Point Reyes. We’ve all had extra time to relax and reflect, our duties on watch consisting mostly of brief anchor checks, boat checks, and weather logging.

We left our Anchorage in Cape Judith, Rhode Island, and headed to Block Island Wind Farm! There were some heavy winds, so we reefed the Mainsail.

We might hit land before we see it

LAC high has mostly worn off. Crew morale was probably the highest it has been all trip. It was a lot of fun seeing people covertly bustling about to make their secret sailor gifts, with some being more tight-lipped about who they had, and others enlisting the help of their friends for information and whatnot.

Just an Ordinary Tuesday

Happy Tuesday (likely now Wednesday, maybe even later) to all of our avid readers! Today was a day like most, filled with watch, class, food, and classwork (as you might imagine). Today, I had afternoon watch, which meant a long night’s sleep after an eventful evening watch last night.

Message in A Bottle

Alice Crawford-Muscat & Nicholas Pabotoy, C Watch, Amherst Regional High School & A Watch, Urban Assembly New York Harbor School

Today was a bit calmer and more routine than the previous days and was the second day of 24/7 watches and sailing. People were starting to get into more of a routine of going to sleep during the day for midnight watches. In the morning the ship was hove to off of Cashes ledge and we did multiple science deployments.
