Today was an absolutely awesome day! We did so many fun things in one day that I’m surprised there was even time to write a blog. So we awoke to a beautiful sunny morning and had some really delicious pancakes (yum), then we all got ready and had another super great rotation day. We started off bright and early with mooring ball practice, where we had a super fun time practicing picking up mooring balls, which is what we do sometimes instead of anchoring. Now we’re all pros! Next we all went scuba diving and the Carina divers did their naturalist dives which is what I did and it was superduper fun. The Vega divers did their first open water dive and they had lots of fun. We all ran into each other underwater and it was pretty exciting to see other divers, as well as all the really cool fish that we saw. Also the night before the Carina divers went on a night dive, which was amazing! Then we had a really great lunch of grilled cheese. After lunch we had a pretty great time in the Picos, which are small sailboats and we were all pro. We had really good wind and got nice speed. For our final rotation we learned about navigation, which is like learning about true north and magnetic north and really great things like that. We had a shower and are now settling in for a pretty exciting looking thanksgiving diner. Then we have a pretty exciting sail chat. I’m sooo excited for tomorrow! Yay!
