Summer Ambassador 2020: Day Eight

Summer Ambassador 2020: Day Eight

Nahant, MA

John

Friday, August 21, 2020  Today we all awoke at about 0730. After getting up we set sail. Our plan was to go to Stellwagen Bank and see some whales. We had breakfast which was some eggs and bacon. After breakfast we started our watch rotations. The JWOs today were John for Port Watch and Grace and Anna for Starboard Watch. Port Watch started with steering the helm, bow watch, boat checks, and navigation. We shortly made it to Stellwagen Bank and we saw many awesome whales! We saw finbacks and some humpbacks!

Today was also a really good day for sailing so no one got too seasick. Our lunch was pasta with beef and some salad. We then started to go back. We had a plan to go to Nahant so that was our destination. When we got there we struck our sails and then dropped our anchor. We had our supper which was some amazing burgers, homemade chips, and salad. That brings us to now. Tomorrow I am excited to dock in the Boston Harbor Islands and we will most likely do our Schooner Olympics and our talent show which I am very excited for! I am also excited to be home on Day 10! Hopefully tomorrow will be just as nice as today!
