Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
Today the Questers on Knot Guilty took our first aid test. Throughout the past 12 days we have been taught, as part of the Quest program, how to identify certain emergencies and how to deal with them using our knowledge of the basics of medical care. Everyone seemed to be positive with how the test went, as we have been taught very well! Also, today, some of us had another go at waterskiing, and I’m extremely happy to be able to say I finally got up within the first two seconds! I didn’t think I was ever going to be able to pull myself up, but with Tor and my fellow shipmates telling me not to give up, I managed to achieve what I had before decided was impossible! Just one very small example of how ActionQuest teaches you to always get back up on your feet when you have fallen. I’m writing this is we are setting up a bonfire and BBQ on a little island named Sandy Spit, where all the shipmates from all the boats are about to gather for dinner. We are all excited to get our hands on a good ol’ burger!
