"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Outward Bound for Isles of Shoals

>> Friday, May 9, 2014

Gloucester has been a wonderful stop for our crew. We not only stocked up on fuel and provisions, but visited whale researchers at Ocean Alliance who are designing drones to fly into the blows of whales to collect valuable data to study whale stress. They call it a SnotBot. They're also working with the pop artist Pharrell Williams on a new line of jeans made out of recycled and reclaimed ocean plastics. 

We visited artists, the Fisherman's Memorial, the Schooner Adventure, and had many other adventures. We're looking forward to Isles of Shoals where we'll learn about songbird research and the Shoals Marine Lab.

We'll be headed Down East after, bound for final exams and some wonderful cruising before seeing friends and family at graduation on the 24th.
