Can You Say Squall?

Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
Today was our first race day! The first race was short and competitive. We came in third place. Not bad eh? After that we had a nice stop in West End, shopped around and ate, it was chill. By one o’clock we were off the dock and lining up for our second race, which was long and required skill to tack. The beginning was fast paced as we blared the opening song from the Lion King. After an hour and 45 minutes we noticed dark clouds rolling in from the windward side of Peter Island. After a few more tacks the clouds seemed much closer. The wind picked up and the rain poured. We quickly pulled in the jib as the wind became stronger. With safety in mind, our amazing staff Charlie, Tom, and Kat asked us to go down below, and they got us safely to the anchorage. An action packed day I would say! Happy birthday Aiden!
