Summer 2019 Training Cruises
This spring, we have been busy finalizing Bowdoin’s centennial refurbishment project at Bristol Marine in Boothbay Harbor. The final phase of this project will be completed in late June. Once work is complete, Bowdoin will return to MMA and the crew will get the vessel ready to sail for two training cruises. These annual expeditions are key training components for Vessel Operations and Technology majors (CR-313).
During this year’s cruises, Bowdoin and her crew, made up primarily of MMA students, will undertake two 14-day offshore voyages along the coast of Maine and Nova Scotia. We will stop in several ports of call along the way.
We will be sharing news of Bowdoin’s progress throughout the summer on this blog.
