Location: The Bight, Norman Island
Today was the first day the crew spent actually sailing. We got up at 6:30 after a rainy night to prepare to leave the dock. Once we were ready we had a dock chat with Mike. Afterwards we cast off. I was at the helm to guide us to our destination. We had a lunch of PB+J. Eventually we reached the caves at Norman Island, where our ten divemasters did their checkout dive, and the rest of us snorkeled with some Vega students. Anyways everyone was pretty tired once we were done, so we relaxed for a few hours working in dive boats and talking. Finally we took the boat and anchored (under Al’s careful guidance) at the Bight. There we were visited by the Deliverance boat, that provided us with ice cream and snacks. Now we’re eagerly awaiting sloppy joes for dinner. Yes!
