Souls on Board

The students, faculty, and crew of S-277, The Global Ocean New Zealand, have all arrived aboard SSV Robert C. Seamans, docked in Auckland. Following two full days of intensive ship training, coupled with visits to a local Maori community and the Auckland War Memorial Museum, we will set sail for the Bay of Islands. I'm not yet sure which is more exciting for our group of students: the extraordinary places we plan to visit over the next five weeks, the abundance of marine and terrestrial wildlife we will encounter, or the fact that we eat six times a day. There are worse jobs than mine, I suppose.

Such a thrill to tag along vicariously, for this grandma who loves to sail! May fair winds find you every day.
