All hands gather to weigh anchor at 0845 and underway from the Sakonnet River with main, fore, jumbo and jib set.

The wind is light all day as participants sail and navigate the ship toward Padanarum.

By 1605 the starboard anchor is down with one shot (90') at the hawse in 17' of water in Apponagansett Bay.

We set anchor watches and gather together for closing night activities before the early morning end to the program tomorrow.

This is the last trip this year for Seth Goodwin and Erica Sachs. We wanted to thank them for all their great work as crew and educators!

We would like to thank Lotus and IBM for donation of software, hardware and funding to enable regular electronic updates from the ship.
