Getting Ready for the Big Race!
Tomorrow is the big day, the much anticipated Pin Rail Chase! We’ve been hard at work trying to learn every line on the boat in the past week, and we get tested on them all tomorrow in a big relay-style race between the watches. Much of today’s free time has been dedicated to really cementing our knowledge of the lines.

Sippewissett Salt Marsh
Today, our 2nd day of SEAScape, and actually our first full day, we took a field trip to the Sippewissett salt marsh. After arriving by shuttle, we explored the extensive marsh, and collected samples of critters such as crabs, minnows, shrimp, pike fish, and other aquatic species that we were able to find and catch with nets. After exploring the winding streams and ponds full of diverse organisms we deposited all that were found into buckets, making sure to separate larger crabs, and potential natural predators from smaller creatures, so as to ensure the survival of as many organisms as possible.
