St. Margarets McTernan
Four Day Program
Transit Norwalk, CT to New Bedford, MA

Day 4: September 11, 2003

Throughout the program, students have been working to complete a checklist of different lines and knots.  Today after field day students were rewarded for completing their checklists by being given the chance to climb the rigging.  With another beautiful day and clear skies, students could see across the bay to New Bedford.

We got underway midmorning, and students spent some time working on a final presentation as a watch about their time onboard.  These presentations were presented right after lunch.  A watch sang a song, B watch played some group games, and C watch did a safety skit.  The crew also put together a ‘slide show’ skit with Traudi commentating.  It was a great way to end the trip.

We arrived at the dock in New Bedford at 1400 and had one final closing circle with all the students.  We presented certificates and said thank yous all around.  On behalf of the entire crew, this was a great trip and we look forward to sailing with St. Margaret’s McTernan again in the future.
