Week in Review
Our first week on the training vessel T/V Kings Pointer was exciting for all of us. Many found it to be their first sea experience and certainly the size of the Kings Pointer opened many eyes! The trip took us down the East River and along the south coast of Long Island, passing by New York City at sunset. In addition to this experience, we practiced our ship handling skills on the Growler and on the RHIBs (rigid hull inflatable boats) doing man overboard drills, charting, navigation, and tide/current calculations.
