Msit No’Kmaq: All My Relations Warrior Update August 12th 2017

Morning Report from the Warriors of Red Road at Sea on the Gulden Leeuw:  August 12th

Yesterday was quite eventful aboard the Gulden Leeuw. The murder spree of trainees and crew continues, most dramatic of all was my own death at the hands of Xico but alas the game continues after my tragic death.

In other news we are approaching the halfway point of our destination. It’s been an interesting trip. We’ve been able to see so many different types of  wildlife I’ve never thought I’d see. I saw a shark on this trip and yesterday Alejandro claims we saw a sperm whale! I hope so because almost every time we’ve seen something I’ve been on the back deck table lounging in the sun, tanning; as you could tell if it’s working hard or hardly working I’m doing the latter. But not always, yesterday I went aloft and helped to unfurl a sail – it was the first time I went aloft since they explained what it was in Halifax.

The crew announced that we’d be doing an on board talent/variety show which should be an interesting event. In sailing news, yesterday we did a jibe maneuver and I helped! I was asked to ease out the braces of the course and lower topsail and… we’re still alive!
