Update from the ship's librarian, Rich Delbango:
It's been over a week and a half since any of us has stepped on dry land. The mini city that is the Empire State VI keeps humming along towards home. As finals draw near, everyone is getting anxious. Supposedly we are to reach Montauk on Saturday afternoon and anchor there for some last minute drills. On Sunday, we will move south and west along Long Island to Sandy Hook where we will anchor again overnight. Monday morning we will take the pilot on board and begin the last part of the voyage through New York harbor and up the East River. The ship is scheduled to dock at 10 AM to be greeted by loved ones welcoming their sailors home. The adventure that was the Summer Sea Term 2015 will be over.
