Captain's Blog 2/16/12

The weather has been really cooperative on this voyage north – as it has been throughout the sea term. First day out we saw some easterly wind which kicked up a pretty good swell, but only pitched the Kennedy a little. Yesterday the wind abated somewhat, and our motion kind of went into a gentle roll. This morning we a shift to westerly wind, but really very close to light airs. . We have made the selections for the annual Master's Award. This award is given to many cadets from varying classes and majors, each recognized by ship's departments.
