As of yesterday, we’re about 1500 nm from the Hawaii Islands and the crew is back into the swing of things. The cadets are back on their respective rotations doing day-work, standing watch, and learning in the classroom. We are almost through what is the longest stretch at sea for Cruise 1, and everyone is really stoked to enjoy what Maui has to offer.
