Breakfast on board Angelique.
After breakfast we'll get under way, setting sail for an island exploration. Along the way you'll have the opportunity to help with sail hauling and handling as you learn the fundamentals of sailing, including becoming familiar with the ship, hauling on lines, looking for seals, porpoise, and birds, and surface tows to see what is living in the water's surface.

On the island, the instructors will guide you in exploring the intertidal zone, where you'll see periwinkles, barnacles, seaweed, shells, and mussels. We'll also learn about the lobster and it's importance to Maine before our traditional Lobster Bake this evening.
