MORNING REPORT

Gulden Leeuw

”All hands to the foredeck!” Olaf, the second mate called everyone out of class to countdown our crossing over the Greenwich Meridian yesterday. Everyone’s been busy studying for exams and getting the last sailing in before semester break. Captain and the maritime crew handed the ship over to the students at 1800 last night. Overnight the students have been in charge of sailing the ship to maintaining a speed over ground of 5 knots, maintaining a balanced sail plan, navigating, lookout and solving any problems that arise while we’re on watch. It’s a way we see how much we have learned this semester about sailing and ocean safety.
