Day’s Run – April 16, 2018

By Cara Lauzon

Pensacola was fun! The city was beautiful and the tall ships festival we just participated in there over the weekend was a little smaller so all the ships were close together and it was easy to wander and see them. The crew made the most of their time off enjoying the sunshine and the eclectic eateries. We had a smooth yet early start this morning, taking on the pilot at 6:30am. Now we are enjoying this most amazing weather, sunny with a good wind, everyone is happy to be sailing for sure. As the normal day proceeds new crew are having the chance to bend on a sail as we bend on the brand new, just finished mizzen staysail, which is the one we have all been watching the Captain and the sailmaker work on throughout the voyage, so it’s pretty exciting to see it go up.
