Flying Fish Frenzy

Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
We woke up early this morning for a full and adventure filled day. For breakfast we had oatmeal, which was for me, the best breakfast we have had so far. Today was windy and a tad bit cloudy, which was perfect for all of the sailing we did. We sailed around the Seal Dog islands to Mountain Point, in which most of us got to try the helm and try tacking. When we anchored at Mountain Point we had lunch, which was tortilla soup. After lunch we went for our first open water dive!! It was very exciting and we saw many colorful fish and coral. The dive was very successful, some of the shipmates even saw a stingray. One of the things to watch out for though was the fire coral, which stings when you touch it. After our first open water dive we sailed to Peter Island. On our way we played Pictionary. We were split into two teams, Team Jacob and Team Awesome Ostriches! Pictionary was really a bonding and fun experience for the shipmates. Once we arrived at Peter Island we had dinner, which was pasta and a sort of biscuit thing with cheese on top. It was really good! Tonight we are having a sailing chat to prepare for our sailing test, our first sailing chat! .
