Afternoon/Evening Report

These reports comes to you in two formats and straight from the thoughts of the students onboard each vessel. One was relayed as a text document, which comes from the S/V Carlyn student crew, and the other was sent as a picture file, which comes from the student crew aboard the S/V Orion.  The picture file may be a bit more difficult to read, but the handwritten words are worth the read.
