Location: Somewhere in the Indian Ocean
Today was a bit different from passage; as usual, we awoke to a wild sea state and lunch down below. Most of us spent the majority of our day down below, catching up on sleep, attending class, and doing some schoolwork. Watch Team One, however, spent quite a bit of time on deck and were delighted to share in their wild adventures. Carly and Val got some time on the bowsprit, re-flaking the jib while being smashed with waves, which was quite a memorable sail handle. The rest of us, while not spending as much time on the rolling deck, endeavored in our own fun down below. Whether that be catching the objects that took flight during rolls, watching Trey and Dylan slide from the port-side to starboard, or desperately holding onto mugs and water bottles to keep them from spilling. All in All, it was most definitely one of my favorite days of passage, and judging by everyone’s squeeze appreciations the next night, it was theirs too.
