This was a classic performance of following the rules for abandoning ship.Every one got off without injury let alone cost of life and commendations go to crew and students for a job well done. What a story for these students to tell their offspring in the future.
Although not having any interest in Class Afloat, I know some of the organizers and can commend them for running an excellent program. I would trust my grand kids to their care without hesitation.
