Apologies for a lack of updates. It has beem somehow both busy and lacking in interesting stories.But now, glorious sailing. We have our trainees from UCONN here with us on the morning of our first voyage.We are cruising full and by on tops, t'gallants' and our fore and afts under a comfortably fresh breeze. The students don't seem to fully appreciate where they are right now, but the energy in the crew is wonderful. This is why we are here. I am in the assistant cook position for the rest of the week, keeping me down below more than I like, but it is a small price to pay for being here. The crew hasn't been given much detail on were this voyage will take us, but that's fun as well. Adventure is afoot.
