Location: Underway to Grenada

Hello, friends, family, and fans. Ben here. I am one of the staff members on Ocean Star, and this is your daily update.
Today, we have been booking it at a rapid 8 knots, and despite some slightly rocky seas, spirits are high. Last night, Watch Team 3 (Ben, Ella, Sammy, and Kackie) was responsible for some awesome sail handling that set us up for a day of smooth sailing. My own Watch Team of Evan, Alev, and Zoe had a relatively chilled night watch, and Watch Team 1 (Heather, Rocco, Jack, and Hannah) was treated to a stunning sunrise. We had a top-tier lunch of chicken Caesar salad and garlic bread from chefs Sammy, Rocco, and Evan. After clean up, we were visited by a pod of dolphins. This sparked the fastest deck appearance of the entire student group Id seen so far. The few glimpses from the cockpit seemed like spinner dolphins (Stenella longirostris), but following a detailed description from Jack, weve concluded that they were small Atlantic Spotted Dolphins (Stenella frontalis). Once we were sure that the visiting cetaceans were gone, we cracked on with a Marine Biology Lecture. As always, the students of Ocean Star were on it, and I am stoked for their first assignment hand-in (Species Logbook entry 1). For the rest of the afternoon, people busied themselves with watches and the usual boat jobs until another amazing meal was served. Pizza and Spaghetti were just what the team needed. The desert of leftover chocolate cake combined with the current wind had left a sizable job for the deck crew, but as I write this, they look almost done with getting O-star back to her un-chocolatey self.

Best wishes from everyone on Ocean Star to you guys back home.
