Another day on the water. The voyage contines with a day of beautiful sailing mostly in the wrong directions. The wind has been strong enough mostly, but inconsistant in direction and almost never useful. We have had a lot of sail handling though; chasing the wind around the compass. The trainees are coming along impressively, and I suspect that if we finish with a pinrail chase it will be more intene and competative than the last. My shoulder is acting up, an I think I have some swelling. I mentioned this to the med officer and we agreed if it was still a problem when we get back to Erie I will get it looked at; hopefull that wont be necessary.
