Other: Yesterday, on Day 15 of the sail from Natal to Buenos Aires, we enjoyed a well-deserved snow day.  Trainees had a relaxing day watching movies and playing card games, while others worked with Ryan, Brucey and the Captain to replace a pin on the main staysail boom.  We had some great evening entertainment following another fantastic Sunday dinner – a Class Afloat Coffee House Talent Show, complete with singing and musical performances, videos made by students, and poetry!
