After a wonderful, busy and successful stay at Cape Charles we were under way this morning at approx 8am. For a time, we sailed along with the Lynx and other boats from the harbour before making our way to Ingram Bay at the mouth of the Great Wicomico River. The wind was rather light but any sail handling is great practice for our crew. We also ran fire and abandon ship drills to continue becoming more comfortable and faster at our assigned tasks.
SHIP’S WORK: Linseed oil on lower shrouds; replaced gaskets (2 each) of fore and main tops’ls; spot painted bitts and quarterdeck rail; labelled life jackets; worked on course E suncloth; wire brushed mizzen stay.
