Our biggest shindig of the season went off without a hitch last Saturday. The weather cooperated, the ship and her guests looked fantastic, and fireworks rounded out the night. Plus, as per tradition, during the last hour of the event the crew got to dress up and join the party! (I have several independent reports that the cold-smoked salmon was particularly good.)
Now the ship and museum are cleaned up, the caterers have left, and we’re back to work as usual. The sailors are getting ready for a new program and a new group of trainees, while Team Carpentry is taking advantage of the break between voyages to do some maintenance work on the ship’s small boats.
Next up: the ship will be underway again starting on 6/12, heading for Put-in Bay with our first high school trainees of the season!
