Mo and Evan here reporting from Dawn watch! It is a slightly chilly early morning here on good old Cramer. We are currently watching the Sun rise quickly and brightly. At these latitudes in summer, it will be in the sky from 0300 to 02300. Light winds yesterday forced us to heave-to for our entire watch, which gave us time to learn and re-learn lines. Several of us got the opportunity to go aloft (climbing the rigging/ratlines and ascending the mast) during this calm weather as well. A day of mild swells helped us to gain our sea legs after a rocky start on the Irish Coast. C-254 students are learning their lines, boat-checks and daily routines quickly. Can't wait to see what France has to offer!
