Man Overboard Drill

Yesterday I had watch again 1200-1600, which actually ended up being sort of fun. About 15 minutes after I took the helm they started a series of man overboard drills, so I got to have plenty of practice with the ship’s handling and rudder control. I learned a lot of things about being the helmsman that I most likely would not have otherwise been able to learn and do. It was really exciting and a lot of fun being the one to make the ship maneuver and make the tight turns!
