The Empire State VI approached the Strait of Gibraltar on Tuesday. We were able to obtain a cell phone signal there so the ship was full of students rejoicing in the opportunity to use their cell phones in order to contact loved ones at home.
The plan is to circle the island of Mallorca at low speed, to allow the cadets plenty of time for navigation practice. We will then head back to Gibraltar for bunkering and proceed to set course for the Strait of Cobh.
Shout out from Cadet Whitney Taylor: “I love you, AC”
