2018 Summer Training Cruise

Day 10: Mini Boat Launch

Posted on: May 16, 2018

The clouds have returned…but we are still making strong headway across the Atlantic Ocean and are one day closer to our first port of call – Cadiz, Spain. Last night we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset relaxing on the 04 weather deck and fantail. Despite the lack of sunshine, it is still very warm and humid outside the skin of the ship. Today we mixed up the daily routine a bit and launched a school sponsored project that researches the effects of wind and current. The craft, Red Storm, sponsored by the Scarborough School District was cast adrift at approximately 1430 local time (~1630Z / Greenwich Mean Time) in position Latitude: 38-45.3N / Longitude: 047-26.6W. We wish her a bon voyage. You can track Red Storm’s progress at http://educationalpassages.org/boats/redstorm/.
