June 1 - June 5 Schoolship

The Seamanship Station in windy weather. Long Lake Elementray students at the helm.
Reefed down - 32 knots by the late afternoon.

The first week in June gave us some strong winds (two days with gusts over 30 knots) and cool weather. Air temperatures were generally not above the low 50's, except for Thursday afternoon when we finally saw a 70 degree reading. Round goby continues to be the dominate fish in the trawl catches. The mean secchi disk reading this week was 17.5 meters (the Friday afternoon reading was only 10 meters due to rough wave conditions and was not factored into the average.) Schools sailing this week aboard Inland Seas were Eastern 5th (TC), Central Grade (TC), St. Peter Lutheran (St. Johns), Mancelona MS, Tappen MS (Ann Arbor), Kennedy Elem. (Manistee), Traverse City West MS, and Long Lake Elementary (TC) -2 classes.

Schoolship aboard the schooner Manitou had Eastern 5th (TC), Mio Au Sable 4th, Central Grade (TC), Mancelona MS - 2 classes, and Tappen MS (Ann Arbor) - 2 classes.
