Winter Ocean Classroom 2021: Day 36

The dreaded day is here: the Nav/Sea midterm. Past-me would tell you he's prepared; present-me disagrees with that 100%. Although this is our off day for sunset sails, it unfortunately does not mean an off day from tests. The test consisted of a vocab and knowledge short answer section, and a chart work section. We all spread out throughout the boat and began. Then, midway through the test, we filed back into the salon because of a brief shower. After grinding for about an hour we turned in our tests and suddenly had an unusual amount of free time. I -for one- spent the majority of my free time sleeping, while some, probably smartly did their homework for Sunday, or next week. It's difficult for me to log this, as I ended up spending the majority of the day asleep, but I do remember waking up for a Morgan-prepared lunch. When I did finally wake up, it was about time for our evening muster right before dinner. Tonight is Saturday Suave, which is our Saturday version of Sunday's Best. With the crew dressed up, Morgan gave an "introductory speech" to his very fancy crock-pot meal. It rounded out a very sleepy but enjoyable day. Until next time.

Signing off,
