10/28/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 38

Johnny G.

I’m used to the waking up in the middle of the night, the tight claustrophobic spaces, the uncomfortable toilets.  I’m used to the hauling, the sheeting, and the freshening, the watching, and the steering.  I’m used to the smells and the sounds, and the thoughts that wa…

Another amazing day on Ocean Classroom, but where to begin?  I guess I’ll start with a great meal of breakfast sandwiches from our chef “The Don.”  We cleaned up brekkie and headed out on our adventure to the post office.  Once our group arrived at the destination,…

Charleston, SC

My day started with a 11:30-12:45 anchor watch.  It was nice to be able to only stay up for a short period.  Although, one would think that having almost a full night’s sleep would recover our sleep schedules but to be honest- we are all very tired by now.  I’m a l…

This morning I woke up to the monotone voice of Daniel Gunther telling me I had watch.  I was happy to hear that the ship was cruising after our slow day yesterday.  I came up and we were heeled over very far.  I went to get a cup of coffee, but there were only a f…

Today B-watch had the graveyard shift from 00:00 to 04:00.  I was in charge of navigation for the first two hours, and I was very happy that was the case.  Not only is it my favorite job, but I was able to enjoy some candy and a hot mug of tea.  After watch at 08:0…

Did you know that 750 gallons of boat diesel costs about $2100?  Well I didn’t either.  Today was our first time getting fuel at a dock with the Proctor students on board.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that we, the students on board, are capable of being in c…

Oh, how the days have flown by on this amazing voyage!  Just a week ago we were bundled up in all of our warm layers bracing the New England cold.  Now we are stripping off layers as we voyage south towards subtropical climates. Our current location is in Norfolk, VA, …
