Ship's Log

Alongside Aloha Tower, Honolulu, HI

Aloha Family and Friends,
We are happy to report that the HPU-SEA Aloha ‘Aina cruise (S253) has been a resounding success.  The students, crew, and faculty are well and the SSV Robert C. Seamans is safe and sound tied up alongside Aloha Tower in downtown Honolulu, HI.  Our final task onboard is to give our home a thorough scrub and then students will move back to their familiar HPU campus home to clean themselves, I hope, before they meet with tonight’s guest speaker.

picYes, even though the sailing portion of the program has drawn to a close there is still much learning to take place.  Students will spend the next 48 hours preparing final reports and share all that they have learned Friday afternoon during group presentations and closing discussions with faculty. 

Stay tuned the next couple of days as Aloha ‘Aina wraps up.


PS: Chrissy Edgeworth - has enthusiastically / unanimously been elected as the SEA Class Representative.
