Another Storm at KP

Amazing to see our Waterfront Midshipman handle a challenge today- 340 plebes at the waterfront moved safely to Yocum Sailing Center, the waterfront officers and trainers responding in fast rescue boats to tow in the monomoys that had been anchored in preperation for the monomoy race. 70+ knots of wind, 5' breaking waves, and salt spray so intense there was zero visibility, but they were able to pull 4 of 5 monomoys off the rocks. It is incredible to see their seamanship skills and training kick-in and calmly and professionally handle a very intense situation!  More Pics Here.
