Inly School Students Set Sail for Massachusetts Bay

Today we, the Inly School got introduced to the boat and the crew. We spent a while learning the ropes and learning things like how to steer the boat. In the act of watch rotations, we are responsible for keeping our eyes on the water and report seeing that the captain should know about. We had pasta for dinner which was a classic delicious meal. After dinner we broke into a rotation of reflection, learning the parts of the boat, and our final active watch. One challenge was learning to adapt to changes in our environment such as seasickness and general water tolerance. One of the gifts we had was watching the sunset set behind us. We are looking forward to going on our night watches and even though it will be a challenging and tiring experience, eating delicious brownies will definitely help.
