This being one of our final days of comfort alongside the One15 Marina, the students relished in freshwater showers and the freedom to explore the city. The morning was occupied with a combined oceanography and nautical science lecture in which the fundamentals of global circulation, weather patterns, an introduction to meteorology, and forecasting were covered. Then, following a bunk inspection the crew was set loose on the town. Sea|mester founder and principal, Jim Stoll, joined us for dinner. His visit will be short lived as he is here to deliver spare parts for some needed repairs, but we are all looking forward to having Jim back aboard for the Kings Cup Regatta in a few weeks.
