Day’s Run – July 21, 2015

REMARKS: We stayed in Portland one extra day, being today, in order to get accomplished a long list of tasks. By staying tied to the dock and focusing on what had to get done we have been able to steadily cross items off the list…without adding anything already done and then slashing a line through […]

Day’s Run – July 19, 2015

REMARKS: There are so many people in Portland who wanted to see the ship I was amazed. At times the wait was over an hour long and yet once aboard our visitors wore nothing but smiles and had lots of interesting questions. For the crew the day was rather hectic. We not only had deck […]

Day’s Run – July 12, 2015

The beautiful sound of sailing is not something that should be taken for granted. Too often there are electronic or motor noises drowning out what we all want to here to experience.

Day’s Run – June 29, 2015

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday we began with 21 crew members, went down to 16 as people signed off and then shot up to 37 as new trainees arrived. With how busy the day was with the festival and store, it is only now that the change is readily apparent. There are people […]
