F’13 students have now officially been underway on the SSV Robert C. Seamans for 24 hours! Watch rotations are in full swing and students are faring well: in science class, the ship’s crew exposed the students to the types of presentations they will be expected to give at the end of our offshore sail. Today in nautical science, students worked with their watches in stations at the bow, amidships, and back aft to complete three jibes and three tacks. Each watch performed a task at each location for both jibing and tacking. Way to go F’13!
After a day full of activities, students will resume their watch schedules into the night and morning. Tomorrow is the first of three science Super Stations, stay tuned for what interesting samples we pull from the ocean.
