Ocean Classroom 2017: Nautical Flags!

Rowan

October 7, 2017: We left our anchorage after chores this morning and made way for the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. As we motored through the canal, students had navigation class with Miss Young where they learned “rules of the road” and history class with Matthew where they learned about the significance of nautical flags. Each watch will design their own flag to fly during each of their active watches! We made way into the Chesapeake Bay and will continue to head for Norfolk.

Right: Pat and Charlotte misplaced their shanty books between Hurricane Island and Roseway and as a “punishment,” were required to serenade the students and crew one evening. They carefully chose “You Belong with Me” by Taylor Swift and welcomed Ivy for backup acoustics.
