Yesterday was a free day for students. We spent time playing Mario Kart, watching movies, celebrating Serafina’s birthday, and fixing the ship. The first issue was our dishwasher stopped working and students had to wash dishes by hand. The second was the shelving unit in the middle of the mess detached from the floor and slid into the benches. Everyone was unharmed and students worked together to get through all the dishes and to tie the unit down until we can fix it properly. Everyone was coming off of watch drenched from the rain and the waves splashing over the boat. The first mate reported waves of up to 10 meters. It was a crazy day but overall one for the memories.
