Location: Porto Venere, Italy

Attempted confined water dives were minimally successful due to inclement weather (lightning, etc.) and poor visibility. Half of the open water divers completed their first dive, and all completed quizzes and equipment checks. Afternoon shore leaves in Port Venere. Mid-afternoon gusts caused the anchor to drag, and it could not be reset successfully. A narrow, stern to slip in the local marina was acquired and will last for at least the night. Dinner in the salon and marine biology. Dock watch tonight. Evan is a God in the galley.
