Day’s Run – 11 June, 2017

By Purser Allison

Sunday Funday but the ship’s work is never done. Today we had two workshops; the first of which was bending on headsails after which crew used their new skills to bend on the flying jib. Captain Sikkema also conducted a workshop on splicing and whipping. Each crew member learned how to make an eye splice with 2 different kind of tapers, finishing off with whippings, a skill which is used daily on the ship. During night watch, Mates conducted a chart house orientation to allow crew to understand the different pieces of navigation equipment and what they are used for.
