Christa McAuliffe Regional Charter Public School Finished Last Program

The Fore Sails: Brendan, Matt, Desiree and Carolyn

Are you kidding me!? This was amazing! We started the day by water testing on the pier to see how clean or polluted the water is in the harbor. We came onto the boat thereafter to take a tour. We got to see the nooks and crannies and started our station work. The groups worked on stations about Boston’s development, Math Science Fun, Seamanship, and Active watch. We steered the boat and learned about Boston and ways that we Bostonians are keeping the water clear. During that time, groups climbed the rig and sat on the bowsprit watching over the city and the islands. Desiree now has the record for the buoyancy/cargo ship building competition. We worked together as a whole crew to lift the 2,000 pound main sail. The meals we ate were amazingly delicious, and the desserts were wicked sweet. Right now everyone is working on their chores for the night. When we are done with our chores we are going to bed, but are going to have to wake up in the middle of the night to do our night/anchor watches. We all have our sea legs by now, and can walk around the ship no problem.
