After a long night at sea through squalls and high seas we made a course change to go to Savannah, Georgia instead of going back to Charleston. A busy morning for C watch, we got up at 0715 to go on watch at 0800 and take us to the dock. We had a good breakfast by Mitch and Sean. On watch we started by fish furling sails, an all hands effort in preparation of the hurricane and to look presentable while docked. While coming into the dock Jake drove the small boat with Susanna and dropped off Ollie to catch lines as they were tossed across with heaving lines. Now at dock we are all catching up on work and with each other. Everyone brought out clothes to hang on the lines after getting soaked through the night prior. Shoes were also brought forward to be able to air and dry out. Back in service were are all finally getting updates on how the election is going. With blue skies overhead we are all enjoying as much time outside before some looming stormy weather comes over us. With classes this afternoon everyone is looking forward to one thing- family fun night! Shoutout to my family and dog, see you soon!
