2018 Summer Training Cruise

Day 13: Azores!

Posted on: May 19, 2018

Today we are traveling through the beautiful Azores! While out enjoying the sunshine we were thrilled to spot a pod of dolphins frolicking alongside in our bow wave. Of course, when we tried to get their picture
they departed the scene.

Fun Fact: One of our snapshots from today shows our new plastic waste processor. Plastic tends to occupy a disproportionate volume of TSSOM’s scarce storage space, especially over longer voyages between ports. The processor melts plastic and makes an easily disposable disc, also known as a puck, for shoreside disposal while reducing the storage volume by 90% (the weight of the plastic essentially remains the same).
