FTV 1/17/11

Today is our first Sunday at sea! The weather is gorgeous, hot in the sun and cool in the shade. There was no morning formation today for the lucky divisions that did not have maintenance or watch. The rest of the cadets have the benefit of sleeping in. everyone is enjoying the delicious BBQ that Chartwells provided on the Helo deck. For lunch they are grilling cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and sausages. For dinner there will be a serving of 900 hand cut steaks as well as some assorted pasta salads.

The Kennedy finished with engines last night and has anchored off the cost of Tampa Bay, just outside cell phone reception. The good news is that we are still in range for the satellites to receive the NFL playoffs as the Patriots get ready to battle the Jets for a spot in the AFC championships.. Cadets are using this day to catch up on Laundry and homework as well as rest. Many have posted up in the mess deck with the hopes of winning board and card games as well as a prime spot to watch the football game at 1630.

Raffle tickets are being sold this afternoon for Mayhem in Mayaguez. Mayhem in Mayaguez will take place during our next Sunday at sea on January, 30th. The proceeds from this raffle are going to benefit the Wounded Warriors Charity. Some of the prizes include Captains inspections off and 1st of the ship with two friends in Barbados and San Juan.
