(Left) Leg 2 team excited about leaving land.
Today leg 2 got on the van at 4:30 am to make it to Pensacola in time for changing with leg 1. Once the Weatherbird II arrived we got to see the people from leg 1, who offered us a lot of tips from their experiences; the most important one being that we should not TRIP ON THE BOLT! We will try our best to keep that in mind, but no promises on how well that will go. Once we said our goodbyes to leg 1, we got some training into what to do when the alarm goes off and general rules on the ship. We also walked around the ship and watched some dolphins surf at the bow. Just like Lexi and Kattey told us from leg 1, thanks for the tip guys!
