Ocean Classroom 2019: Day Forty Three

Savannah River

Birgit P.

Today we left Savannah and got ready for the overnight to Charleston. We had an all hands history class and Brooks got to join in. We sang some shanties and read our Humans of the Port papers. It was interesting to hear the comparisons between Norfolk, VA and Savannah, GA. We had leftovers for lunch and we set the sails up. Today we got to set the sails by ourselves, so without any crew advice. I personally got to command the raising of the Main Sail. I was sooo excited and I think I did ok for my first try. C Watch had watch from 1200 - 1600, it was pretty uneventful and there was very little wind. During almanacs George got the friendship hat from Kara. I got some rest and we had din din. My favorite part was the homemade bread. Jaimes and I sat on the cabin top and watched the beautiful sunset. At this moment we are sitting in the salon doing our homework and journal entries.
