They began their journey today on the north end of Cyprus Island and explored the waters of the Salish Sea around the north side of Orcas Island. They made a brief stop at Roche Harbor on San Juan Island before finding their way to Jones Island for the night.

The Afternoon Report as provided by Tess and Hadley
James Island

The S/V Carlyn is about 130ft offshore near a dock where three other boats are located (Jones Island). It was sunny for the most part today, but it got a little cooler later in the afternoon.
We learned how to set and douse the main sail today. That was awesome.
We also got to use the plankton net to catch plankton for our experiment.

Tomorrow we would like to see things in tides pools and go hiking
This is such an awesome bonding experience and it has been really fun learning how to run the boat and also use science equipment.
