Hola a todos!  (I think you will be in Puerto Rico when you read this note) 

Just wanted to let you know that my students in in the Marine Technology club at Sturgis Charter Public High School will be reading your blog throughout this voyage.  We are very interested in the work you will be doing with underwater sound recordings.  (Captain Sean Bercaw told us a little about the project.  I hope I heard him right—that you will be recording whale songs??)  Our club is going to be building hydrophones this month—we are looking forward to reading about how you explore sound in the sea!

Fair winds and following seas!
