June 18th, 2023 - Happy Father's Day from beautiful Hilo, HI! (Posted on 6/16 as we will be in port on 6/18).

We have officially and successfully made it to the second half of Cruise 2023! We are also back across the international date line, so we are no longer a day ahead. Cadets have been busy wrapping up projects and preparing for our arrival in Hilo, to be followed by four days of rubber docking around the Hawaiian Islands when we depart on June 20th, 2023. The weather has cooled considerably now that we are away from the equator and the humidity has decreased to a comfortable level. We would like to wish a very Happy Father's Day to not only the dads aboard the TSGB, but dads back at home, wherever home may be.
