Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:

We are docked at Blake Island. It is very low tide, no wind and warm. It is also very peaceful and quiet.

Today’s weather:

Very warm and sunny. There was no wind or rain. It was a beautiful day.

Describe highlights from today’s science and sailing watches:

Today we learned how to set up the main and mizzen sails. We climbed up the mast to hook a latch onto the halyard. Science deployed north of Blake Island using the zooplankton net, niskin bottle.

Do you have any questions, concerns, or expectations for tomorrow?

If there is bad weather how does it affect the difficulty of using sails Also where will we be going? Lastly, what will we explore in the science section of the day?
