An update from Playfair’s First Mate

After a balmy march break trainees and wardroom alike are settling back into the weekend work routine.  It was great to see the turnout of trainees over the break, and even better to see our (almost) full workforce this weekend past. I’m sure I speak for all of the crew when I say that the weather will be missed, as it allowed us to enjoy many jobs on the surface away from the shop.  Playfair’s deck is now only a few boards from bare, and Pathfinder’s newly varnished chart table is back in place acting as eye candy for those who pass by it.  Besides the work, March Break offered up time to enjoy the waterfront, and participate in some highly anticipated Brigs traditions.  Now I don’t mean to brag, but I feel fortunate that I was able to enjoy weather almost as nice as those vacationing down South while still living and working with the Brigs bunch.  Back to more current events, this Saturday had much more seasonal weather. Sheltered from the rain in the shop, I witnessed and participated in an impressive flying serving and sanding party, with great effort from everyone.  To those who are available on Sundays work will be happening from 10 am to 5 pm. It would be great to see as many people there as possible; the sailing season is just around the corner and we all want the boats ready to meet the nice weather!
