Day’s Run – May 10, 2015

Sunday at sea. The Captain held an afternoon workshop on squall management as we’ve seen a few over the last couple of days, and their strength and frequency might increase as we get north. After the workshop we had a relaxed social hour midships with popcorn, chat and dominoes.
