Hello family, friends, and followers of Cramer’s current cruise, We sailed this morning from Lisbon with hands in general quarters to get off the dock and down Rio Tejo, then returned to sea watches for our all-to-short transit to Cadiz, the final destination of C-268. It is bittersweet to realize that the student crew is coming into its own in terms of taking ownership of the management of the ship with hardly enough time to get back into the routine of sailing before we arrive on the second.
For now, though, we’re sailing easily with the wind and sea on our quarter—that is to say not getting tossed around too much—and we have plenty of time and space in which to sail, so the ship is happy.
