Boat Appreciation Day

Our last day began as many others did, with an early rising. While breakfast was being eaten the four sail side skippers met for a pre-race meeting to discuss the route and rock paper scissors for starting positions. That being done, cleanup was quickly carried out, and then the boats were moved into position. When the countdown finished the sails were quickly unfurled and the race began. Unfortunately, a mid-race squall hit some of the boats, making for a less close race than would have been desired. After that brief excitement the staff took over the boat and we began the mammoth cleaning known as boat appreciation day. Every inch of the boat, within and without, must be swept, scrubbed, and polished in preparation for our departure tomorrow. After this we will have free time until this evening, when we have a final party with the other boats. Following that will be our last night together, a last chance to enjoy each others company before the tearful goodbyes that will surely come in the morning…
