A day sail is like any other voyage in that you get the ship ready to go, depart from the dock, sail around, and bring the ship to rest at it’s destination. It differs greatly, however, in the length of time spent underway. Maybe you’ll be out for only an hour or two before preparing to return to the dock rather than spending all day and perhaps all night sailing along. There isn’t much more time to do anything other than the sailing. That is the focus of the day and what most of the work revolves around. There isn’t as much downtime or the time to get involved with making any progress on maintenance projects. Usually, the day sail is either a training exercise or a public relations event. Time is spend learning to sail the ship or demonstrate to others how it is done.
