As I was sitting down to write the blog today, I heard a crew member mention that we crossed the 2000nm log today. That is a long way to sail and puts us a long way from anywhere. This is perhaps what I love most about this life at sea, the community it builds. Ship, Shipmate, Self…. it's a pretty good guideline, and really cool to see all the acts of kindness that unfold each day.
Sunrises and sunsets, the other two reasons I really love doing this, and it was clear enough to see both today. The highlight of my day was working with students on their upcoming engineering presentations. They will be pairing up and giving 5 minute presentations on subjects such as, “Shipboard Life without Power” and “Water Desalinization.” Bound to be entertaining and informative, just like what we learned in class today; a blue whale's tongue is bigger than a bull elephant… the more you know.
