Slick Ninja Nick

Location: The Bight, Norman Island
Today is the second to last day of our trip and the very first of those day that we can accurately describe as a lazy day. We started off the morning at 6:15 by readying the ship to motor to the wreck of the Rhone. We ate underway, and by 7:30 we were on Wicked Good getting ready to get into the water. The wreck was AWESOME and huge, and the first dive past 30 feet (it reached 60). After everyone was back on the surface and getting ready to get into our beloved dinghy Stealth; yet another storm hit. Back on Knot Guilty we warmed up with sweatshirts and tea, and motored around the corner to a less rocky anchorage to wait for Jake and the other boats to finish diving the wreck. We spent a few hours just hanging out and taking naps until lunch. After we had another few hours of relaxing until we motor-sailed to Norman Island, where we anchored and will be eating dinner and having a Lifeworks forum later in the night. All together today was a lovely day despite the persistent storms, as we were able to spend a lot of quality time with our shipmates as the trip nears its end. However, we created a monster in Slick Ninja Nick after teaching him Ninja… he is the undefeated champion of Knot Guilty on his very first day of knowing the game. We wholeheartedly apologize to the second and third session Knot Guiltiers, and you should consider this your fair warning.
