Location: The Atlantic Ocean
Today was by all accounts a second consecutive day of celebrations. Day 31 marked a full completion of the job wheel with everyone back to their original jobs assigned on day number 1 and also our first sighting of mainland Europe as we entered the Gulf of Cadiz. its amazing upon sighting land after a long crossing to take a step back and look how far we’ve come in those 31 days of adventure. 3546 nautical miles to be exact. But in retrospect the tangible distance we have covered over the course of this past month bares nothing in comparison to the metaphorical journey we have undertaken as a crew of 29. There is always a huge sense of pride when you reach a point where the students can for all intents and purposes sail this boat on their own. Yes a little guidance is still necessary but for the most part your sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters have got this whole sailing thing down to a “T”.
