After a bouncy night at sea, we awoke to a beautiful and calm sunny day. There was still a slight swell, but we didn’t let that slow us down. So, after breakfast we eagerly went up to the lido deck to listen to the sail explanation. We attempted to memorize the names of each of the four masts, 29 sails, and their functions as Chief Mate Heiner thoroughly discussed each item. When the sails were prepped, Bosun Martin yelled, “hit the rig.” Suddenly, like a scene out of movie, 18 sailors began to climb the masts up 140-feet high to loosen the gaskets of the square-rigged sails. It was impressive to see the two women leading the way to the highest yards.
