Crew Training and Rigging Continues

Loading the life raft (Inflatable Buoyant Apparatus or IBA), supervised by Capt. Champt.

Crew training today included marine radio usage, plumbing, electrical system, steering failure, medical kits, and medical standing orders. After the training session we loaded the life raft onto the vessel and secured it in its cradle. This afternoon the crew is bending on the staysail and making final preparations for underway drills tomorrow. -Tom K.

  1. One of the most important part of the ship are the cruise crew. Aside from all the parts of the ship working in harmony to make sure it sails well, the crew ensures that these parts are in place.
