Today began the first full day of our passage. Throughout the night, three watch teams rotated every three hours. At 1200, the whole crew woke up for a lunch of chicken wraps that were amazing. Following lunch we had an MTE class where we learned about estimated positions, dead reckonings, and courses to steer. During that class, Mike and Chantale collected samples of plankton which we observed in the next hour during OCE class. After, everyone decided that it was time to shower and we heaved to and jumped into the middle of the Mediterranean Sea for showers. At 1800, we began watch rotations again for the night and enjoyed shrimp pasta for dinner that many people enjoyed.
