Location: Underway to Motril, Spain
Today marked our first rotation all the way around the job wheel, roughly a third of our voyage. Everyone has now completed every job once. We mustered for lunch at noon and then broke into afternoon classes. I covered the basic rules of the road during the MTE introductory seamanship class. We discussed actions to avoid collisions at sea and navigational buoyage. We then had a brief meeting about diving before the optional professional seamanship class led by Captain Kevin. After classes got out, Townes and I had an adventure fixing a clog in one of the boy’s heads. Townes stepped up and had it working again in no time. I was glad for his help, and I am sure that he will remember the event as type two fun. It’s now a warm and calm afternoon as the crew anxiously waits for what promises to be a delicious dinner of baked barbecue ribs and chicken! Afterward, we will be back into our overnight watch rotations and preparing for an early morning arrival in Motril, where we are planning diving and sailing activities and a shore excursion to the picturesque city of Granada.
