Today was almost a full day at sea and therefore the perfect oppertunity to relax and catch up on sleep, some readying or listen to a lecture or two! As per usual there was a full schedule of exciting lectures. Our photo instructor Ryder kicked off the day by teaching us some iPhone photography tricks and nauralist Conor followed with a talk on whaling in the Nortdic Seas. In the afternoon archeologiest Ailsa gave us an insight to the prehistory of Orkney and Shetland which was a great preperation for our next two days.
After dinner we walked across the road and saw the most energetic local band called The Chair and they had many of us out dancing on the floor to their rhythmic music and sounds of fiddles, banjos, accordions and drums.
