2018 Summer Training Cruise

Day 42: Happy Father’s Day!!

Posted on: June 17, 2018

Happy Father’s Day from TSSOM! It’s a warm day with a bounty of sunshine.This morning we are swinging the ship to create an up to date deviation table. Later on in the day we are passing Ibiza, Spain on our starboard side! There has been quite the marine life out on the ocean today; students were able to see multiple pods of dolphins, jelly fish, and even a sea turtle. Despite the great weather, midshipmen are expecting the seas and winds to build throughout the day. By the late evening we’re expecting 40 kt winds and up to 10-foot seas. The countdown to Italy drops to four days as we head further into the Mediterranean.
