Location: Marina Cay
The day started calm, as the sun rose over the horizon the boat seemed to come back to life. I was skipper and woke up at 6:45, as usual I had to wake the chefs. Breakfast was pancakes and after we were done we cleaned dishes by that time all the other boats were ahead of us. I encouraged the crew to raise the sails in order to catch up with them and soon we caught up with Mambo No. Five. We started to race to see who would get there first. We lost the race but I think that we did a good job because we were really close to them and they had a good 15 minute head start. We reached a reef called Mario’s because all the coral head looked like mushrooms. We saw stingrays, spotted drums, a lion-fish, and many barracuda. After everyone sailed to port. There we stayed until 4. When we got back to the boat we ate supper and at 7 we went and listened to a tape until 9.
