The crew spend a blustery night on the Carlyn listening to the wind whistle through the rigging in anticipation of the students arrival in the morning.
Student Notes from Monday – Day 1
Please share some interesting stories about today…
A fellow classmate threw a piece of food off the boat and learned from the Salish staff it wasn’t the best thing to do. We learned the Carlyn travels to be self-contained and there is a way to dispose of compost and all our other garbage.
Any favorite wildlife sightings, quotes, games to share?
Some favorite wildlife sightings I saw today are porpoises, my favorite games I learned are “tap tap” and “who sir me sir.”
Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:
The Carlyn is anchored about 200 yards from shore where the other half of the group is staying for the night.
Today’s weather was mostly cloudy and a bit sunny for most of the day, wind was not too strong and was not that cold.
Describe highlights from today’s science and sailing watches:
Highlights from today were learning new games, learning about zoo plankton and visiting Sucia Island.
Any questions, concerns, or expectations for tomorrow?
Questions I have for tomorrow is where are we going to sail to next? What are the meals going to look like? and I hope to learn more cool stuff like I did today.
