To be honest, I don‘t really know what to write about today. Some days are just not that special, but that’s also part of the journey. I don’t want to say, that these days are boring, I love them, because they give me time for myself, where I can read, draw, listen to some music or just talk. These days are just not that interesting for other people to read about. Anyways let’s start the with the daily report!

As we have to wait a bit more for our engine to be fixed, we’re trying to use our time efficiently here. With that being said we usually start the day doing some schoolwork. Today we had three hours of individual class to study for our upcoming maths test tomorrow. So everybody sat down to do some maths. Some people even continued studying throughout the day and night. We all dread having to write this test and are thinking about starting a petition to have maths being an optional subject in school. Then all the people who love maths can keep on studying, while all the others can finally start living a happy live (just kidding).

After lunch we started with our maintainance projects. Some people cleaned our very dirty and disgusting bean bags with a lot of soap and our high pressure cleaning type of thing. It was so much work to finally get all the brown water out of them. Others cleaned and repaired our two dingis, fixed some ropes, sails and also our lookout chair that kind of just fell apart.

After that we finished our challenge from yesterday, Marvin jumped as Parry Hotter against Sarah as Poseidon. It was very close but in the end Parry Hotter won with 23 points against Poseidon with 22 points. So Echo 1 got first and Delta 1 second.

Listening to music with Marvin or Marlene is one of my favourite things to do in our free time right now. I‘m constantly running around with Leo’s mp3-Player searching through his music. It‘s so much fun, because every day I find new songs I didn’t know he had. If I‘m lazy I tend to listen to a few songs in „Dauerschleife“. For example I listen to „Stan“ – Eminem, „No time to die“ – Billie Eilish, or „Lovely“ – Billie Eilish. They‘re very chill songs which I like though sometimes I also have to switch to some happier songs, haha!

Today I also found a book written by „Buchheim“. It’s about the „Gorch Fock“ which is a Schoolship of the German marine. The ship is massive. To give you a better understanding of the dimensions: It is built for 269 men, which is more than five times the amount of people we have on board. My dad told me about this ship before so I knew some things about it before already, though I really didn’t how big it really is. The „Gorch Fock“ is about twice as wide as our Reggie and the masts are also double the height of our masts. I mean I already think our masts are quite tall, but imagine being even further up in the air. And then imagine doing this while sailing with big big waves! It’s very impressive and also a bit intimidating.

Well I guess this is it for my daily report today. Now I‘m going to keep on studying maths for a bit and then go to my harbour watch. I hope you all have a nice day! 🙂
