After a Week of Rain

Tuesday we had both sun and wind, so Level 3 and the Racing Class students sailed J22’s to Spectacle Island! It was a wonderful voyage, allowing us to practice navigation, view several of the Harbor Islands, and from the boat we could see comb jellyfish. Once on the island we fished off the pier, combed the beach for pottery and sea glass (and left it on the island), took in some sun, and made sandcastles.

Back at Courageous, we pulled up a few lobster traps and found green crabs, red rock crabs, a sea star, and even a flounder (which had also swum into a trap). Finally a week of sun and great catches.
