It started as a chilly, dark and cloudy morning
with a weather forecast that put a frown on the captain’s face. By the end of the day though, we put in a good day of sailing and science in some breezy sunshine.

The Afternoon Report has been provided by students in the Water Watch.
Tell us some interesting storys from the day:
Camden’s hat fell in the water and the captain put into motion a man-overboard drill to go get it. A large ship got in the way though and he decided we weren’t going to be able to recover the hat.

We played the game ‘Who sir, me sir’.
We also saw a baby raccoon on the island.
