Location: Underway to Mauritius in the Indian Ocean
Today was our first full day of our passage from the Cocos Keeling islands to Mauritius. We have found that the waves in the Indian Ocean are much bigger than what we've been used to. A lot of people have had trouble sleeping because the boat is so rocky, but we will soon get used to it. Today we had our third class of Student Leadership Development which was fun. Following SLD we had Oceanography which is always interesting. We averaged 8 knots for most of the day which gave us a 200 mile day since be left Cocos Keeling. We are hoping this wind continues so that it will be a fast trip to Mauritius.
