Cold Fronts and Home Fronts

Chris Nolan, Captain

Colonization to Conservation in the Caribbean

I am very proud of my shipmates.

Yesterday, we wrapped up our student “Final Mission” in which the students of C-271 took complete ownership of vessel operations in order to meet a divers set of scientific, cultural, and nautical goals.  At 1430 yesterday, we heard the final mission report from each watch’s delegate, and I speak for all of the faculty when I say we found that the students did a terrific job operating the vessel and articulating their achievements.  Not only did they meet their objectives, but they worked together across all watches to complete the mission as one team. It was great.
