For the last couple weeks Micah - one of our new trainees has been out
on the water, getting lots of knowledge and practice from a couple of my favorite gondoliers.
Today was Micah's final rowing test - the "final systems check".
Micah rows while head trainer Simon enjoys the ride.
We don't wear shorts on passenger cruises, but for training, and other non-passenger adventures, definitely.
Today was a "shorts day".
Heck, shorts were invented for days like this.
It was a great day to be out on the water.
He's got an impressive crew rowing background, so a lot of attention was focused on translating the movements. Thanks to my gondoliers Simon and Kalev, and tenacity on Micah's part, today he passed with flying colors.
