The chart image to the right shows the track of the ship for the sail today. After packing up all the gear over at Taber Park, the group hiked back to the ship at Billy Woods Wharf and boarded for another day of program.

The ship remained at dockside longer than expected because of the extremely low tides of late (spring tides) and the bow 'touching' in the mud at the head of the slip. It was simply a matter of waiting for the tide to rise along with help from the windlass and engine astern to back away and get underway in mid-afternoon.

Not to worry, the crew and scouts kept busy with learning stations and activities throughout the day.

Captain: Amanda Madeira
Program Coordinator: Inette Rex

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