Back At It

After a long break, the Roseway crew is back in full swing - teaching kids in the morning and sailing in the evening. Today was Dock Day. We stayed at the dock and talked about trust and teamwork with the kids. We did trust leans, learned about buoyancy, practiced with heaving lines, and the all-time favorite - climbing the rig. After the second school group left, we quickly scrambled to get ready for the sunset cruise. The Captain steered towards Buck Island while crew and passengers hoped to spot whales migrating from the North Atlantic. Though we didn't see any whales, it was a very nice sail. The day ended with good conversation over one of the crew's favorite meals, shrimp scampi!
