On Friday night, we filled the Hospitality Suite with 36 shipmates, 17 of their wives, and my daughter, Caitlin, and her friend Christine, handling the Staff responsibilities. Our 2200 cutoff time came and went, as more than 50 of us picked up where we last left off, catching up and trading sea stories well into the night.

A chorus of rowdy sailors (is there any other kind?) filled the suite and halls with echoes of laughter, and, had the hotel not anticipated our behavior by putting us at the far end of the building (we’ll never forget the walk to the suite!), we would have been thrown out on our ears, not that that hasn’t ever happened before.

Finally, as the crowd began to thin, drifting off to rooms or the bar crawl, at 0130 we turned off the lights and locked the door on Day One of REGROUPEX 17.
