Location: Underway to Mauritius

Today I was woken up at 3:45 for watch at 4 AM. It was a great watch because the sunrises at 5:30 already so it wasn’t hard to stay awake. Last night we turned our clocks back an hour which is why the sun rose so early today. During the night we made good speed, around 9 to 10 knots.In the morning we saw some clouds coming but we where lucky it turned another way and it didn’t hit us. For lunch we had some chicken burritos that were very good and made by Manuela. Afterwards we got cleanup done.It was very wavy during that so Tegan got a salt water shower down below through a hatch, because we were hit by a big wave. At class we first had an OCB (marine biology) test which was not that easy and created much discussion afterwards. In the SLD class (leadership) we watch a movie 7 years in Tibet which was very relaxed after the test. Everyone enjoyed that but in the middle we had to stop for shower time which we weren’t happy about. Showers were cold as usual but without rain today which was good. For dinner we had pasta. The squeeze question was tell which kind of dog would be the person next to you. We had many funny answers of mixed breeds. Now we have study hall and everyone is studying because we have an MTE (basic seamanship) Radio Test tomorrow and we had to finish a biology paper when we arrive in Mauritius. We should be arriving in 528 nm which means only 2 to 3 days left.
