The Day of Unknown
Posted: Wed, Aug 3, 2011
Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
I awoke to a watch that tells no time. Another reminder that it died on our first dive (water resistant to 100 meters, ha!). The day started slow because of the rain. We were able to eat down below because of the rain. This is when the unknowing began about our plan for the day. It turned out to be a dive talk and a sail chat before sailing to Virgin Gorda. Lunch took place right before we set sail again. Personally, sailing was great. After Rob helmed the ship I got another chance to helm. It felt just as the first time I grabbed the wheel five days ago. It was awesome. In the literal sense of the word… it was awe inspiring. I got to hold the ship on a starboard tack for an hour and a half. Wonderful. We now are rafted up next to the rest of the fleet at Vixen Point in Gorda Sound. Just wanted to also say thanks to my parents, love you guys.
