Hi all,


Today’s the day! Mission officially starts today as of morning watch, but as B Watch, we’ve got a special role: prep C watch to start mission, and to bring us all to the finish line. It just so happened that we had the honour of starting the day off with Dawn Watch and ending it with Evening Watch.

I hardly know how to begin.have you ever seen something happen and, while you’re in the moment, while you’re witnessing it, you know that this, this is a thing that many, many people have never seen before, that this, this is a thing that you imagine you may never see again in my lifetime?

Now that we have come back into the California Current and gone past multiple marine sanctuaries, I find it very hard not to spend as much time as I can on deck.

Today was our relaxed full day anchored at Point Reyes. We’ve all had extra time to relax and reflect, our duties on watch consisting mostly of brief anchor checks, boat checks, and weather logging.

Today was a fairly normal day aside from the squalls, rainbows, and the tuna we caught (which was extremely exciting).

As today’s assistant steward, I expected a full day in the galley, pleasantly warm and away from the cool, cloudy weather on deck.
