Captain J – Skipper
Kai J -- Helmsman/Deck Hand

2nd Mate Kai wears a winch cover as a hat as
Scarlette prepares to dock at Kadena Marina.
1st Mate Tomoe and 2nd Mate Kai relax aboard Scarlette during light
winds off the coat of the Sunabe Sea Wall.
Captain J keeps hoping for stronger winds during the trip that was a
smooth sailing experience...too smooth and slow.
Capt. J and First Mate Tomoe snuggle up for a photo in the cockpit of
Scarlette. This was the first mate's first trip aboard Scarlette.
