Set Anchor for First Night in Montauk

We sailed across to Montauk, NY and anchored in Fort Pond Bay. It is so beautiful here! The students were in training all day. On the way over from CT, they learned about man over board, fire and abandon ship procedures, as well as how to get around the guts of the boat down below. After anchoring, they did their first climbing exercise and learned how to handle, lash, and stow lines. A few of them are up on the yard right now, furling the sail. There will be a whole other round of activities after dinner and then the two-hour night watches begin!
