Our first outing

Today we were under a lot of pressure. We were coming into the school year as juniors. More responsibility, less excuses. We were excited and nervous and our skills were still fresh. We started practicing man overboard drills with Oscar (our school dummy). We got into groups and put our minds to work. There was shouting of distances, heads being turned and hair blowing in the wind. At the end, we talked about what could've been improved in the process and took the constructive criticism. We all got through successfully and worked as the vessel team and family we worked up to be.
