Day 3 – First Passage
Posted: Wed, Jul 27, 2016
The day started with us learning our new watch groups, discussing what to do during watches and then learning each group’s specific duties. After that, we raised anchor and headed towards Porto Vener. Once the hatches were dogged and the lines coiled, it was one last dip in the sea for showering. With our captain back from customs and immigration, we lifted anchor and set off for open ocean. Cooper and Chapman took us step-by-step through raising the main stay sail and the forward stay sail and after set off with the coastline on our port side enjoying the ever changing scenery of France and eventually merging into the rocky Italian coastline, this finished with a great dinner and sunset before heading to bed and starting our watch new watch teams.
