Leaving Norfolk, VA

Tahg

A cruise ship fifty times our size was the group’s wake up this morning as they pulled up on the opposite side of the dock. Not only was it loud, but it completely blocked our view of Norfolk harbor, even though it was ugly and raining, it still blocked our beautiful view. The en…

Dear voyage log, Our day began promptly at 0700, we were woken up and we all drafted ourselves out of bed for chores, B Watch had deckwash. We slid all over while scrubbing due to the excess oil on the deck. Next was an amazing breakfast consisting of cream cheese topped pumpki…

Norfolk, VA

Kerri

Today was a day of rest and recharging. We were able to all have a well-needed sleep in. Since our plan was to depart Virginia today, we were able to take it easy. The reason we stayed put was due to a storm off of Cape Hatteras. Instead of setting sails we began the day with cho…

Today marks our 3rd day in Norfolk, Virginia. For me personally, this is great. I live just south of here in North Carolina. We started off the day with doing laundry and I have never been more excited in my life to do laundry. It was great and now all of my stuff is clean. While…

Norfolk, VA

Zach R. S.

Dear voyage log, Today was quite eventful! We started off with a trip to Nauticus. Nauticus is hard to describe, there is just so much going on. It's pretty much a naval/boat oriented museum. They have jumbo Battleship (the board game), 3D movies and a cool current simulator. Th…

Arrival in Norfolk, VA

Emily C.

Okay, so, it's like day 30, per Matthew's count of our trip so far, and I must admit that I'm truly confused. So recently, I remember our cushy setup at Camp Kenwood where I felt like this trip would be an eternal sleepaway camp. Then, we went to Hurricane Island and next thing y…

Ian D.

Today one could say was somewhat of a crazy day... We started off the morning as always at 0700. It was seemingly a normal day - we had breakfast and got underway just for a day sail. After having a super good breakfast I went back to bed only to wake up from my slumber hearing …

Today was very fun. We got up early at 07:00 and A Watch had deckwash for the morning chore. After that we ate breakfast which was very good. After that we got all hands to the halyards and hauled up the sails. After doing that we put up the anchor and sailed away from Annapolis …

Bright and early this morning we had an all hands muster to sail into Annapolis. A Watch was on the mainsail, B Watch was on the fore, and C Watch was on the headsails. As we were sailing in the boat was heeling so much and the water was spraying over the side. It was so much fun…
