Today we had a full and relaxing day sailing the Ionian Sea. Captain Svendsen gave a weather update and then a detailed “play-by-play” as the Sea Cloud sailors braced the yards, went aloft to loosen the gaskets on the sails, and returned to the decks to set and trim the sails. Afterward, certified photo instructor Linda Burback presented “Photography Basics: Composition +” providing tips and insights on how to best capture our adventures. After a delicious buffet lunch on the lido deck, historian David Brotherson presented “Sicily: Crossroads of the Mediterranean” in preparation for our first stop in Sicily tomorrow. A few guests were lucky enough to spot passing dolphins as we watched rain clouds in the distance.
