Our first full day in the Atlantic Ocean seemed relatively normal as we were motor sailing down the coast of Morocco. The sun rose earlier than we were used to this morning as we changed our clocks back two hours, so instead of the 8:30 sunrise it is now at a more convenient time. The day continued on as we rotated through watch teams, caught up on sleep, and studied for classes. As evening began to set in the wind picked up slightly, which made for an interesting dinner involving trying to keep all of the pots and pans from spilling over. We cleaned up from dinner and settled back in to rotations and bed with the Moroccan glow off the port side.
