#986 Complete Exhaustion

Posted by Tall Ships America on June 7, 2011

It’s been a long day.  You were fixing, tarring, furling and teaching. You were swabbing decks, cleaning the heads,  mending sails and scampering aloft. You are tired but you’ve persevered because your ship comes first and your shipmates are depending on you.  Because if everyone doesn’t band together to do their best and keep the vessel shipshape, then what’s the point?   Every crewmember plays an important role and only by teamwork can the ship be sailed safely and efficiently. As you fall into your rack,  the ship rocking you to sleep, you know that you gave 110% percent of awesome.

Have an idea or a story you want to share? Email it to me at erin@sailtraining.org and I’ll add it to the blog with props to you.
