Greens Farms Academy Five-day Program Portland to Gloucester
Third Day

A light S'Wstrlybreeze filled in and we anchored up in Richmond Harbor Island in Richmond Island for the night.  After  a swim call, the Harvey Gamage invited both ships over for a gam after supper.  Much music and storytelling were shared by all.

The two charts show the track of the day for our anchorage this evening off Richmond Island south of Cape Elizabeth. on board is like poetry
This was submitted by Reid, Joe and Lyman on day three:

- Hi! my name is Bobster the lobster
Today I woke up and got out of bed
to my surprise there was a boat above my head

The kids soon awoke when they were poked
Although it was 6, they seemed to be stoked

The love of their life is Dora Lee
she cooks the best food there could ever be

Breakfast was served, it was very well deserved
the two-time  dishwashers were quite un-nerved

The anchor started rising when we were realizing
they needed to leave as ordered by Steve

The kids aboard were tying knots
while the helmsman was dodging the pots

The sail  was half day
then Zack started to play

As they gathered around the guitar
the two other boats were not too far

Reid and Lyman did a flip
off the bow of the ship.

While the others just froze
from their head to their toes

Dinner was pork
which was pierced by their fork

Then Ebo and Steve had to leave
to go aloft from which the fall isn't soft

After Joe and Zack sang
the bed-time bell rang

That's the end of their day -
So as old sailors say - Hip - Hip   Hooray!
