Well we are almost there, our distance from the island for our noon reading was 270 NM. I had three goals coming into this trip two of them have been completed with one more to achieve. So far this trip has been awesome the crew has been very helpful to me in achieving these goals. Anyway enough about my goals more about the trip. The students that were chosen to go on this trip have been awesome to sail with. The other students have made this trip more enjoyable and setting sails with people you don’t like can get pretty ugly but, if you set sails with people you like it is a more enjoyable experience. The food thus far has been really good, especially the dinners which HAVE been great but, I still can’t wait to get food that doesn’t move around whenever you are trying to enjoy it. This trip has been something I have wanted to do for a long time especially on a traditional tall ship. When is there ever an opportunity like this to sail on tall ship retracing some of Captain Cook’s footsteps. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I was one of the lucky few who got chosen to help crew this ship. I don’t think I could ever think of something this exciting to experience and again many thanks to Woodson Woods for having the vision and determination to construct this one of kind tall ship. So anyways I am glad that I got to experience this one of a kind trip. Now we have one part which is the touristy part. I end this posting. 21 00 North, 152 00 West.
