We had a very informative day with the Safety at Sea Symposium at the University of Boston campus today (link).
Lots of experience in the room, good presenters, relevant topics and even some food. Nice to see some familiar faces after this looong winter.
While not many things were really new, it was valuable to refresh the memory, learn a few things here and there, complete our check lists etc; but mostly confirming that we are on the right track. We already carry most of what was recommended on board and showed the suggested behaviors during prior cruises.
Crew that went today:
Good to see that our rigger, Kevin, was the expert on all things rigging:
Kevin will survey our boat in April to make sure we are good to go.
