Today we woke up and had ah-mazing pancakes. They were reallllyyy good! Bruce told me to put peanut butter and syrup on min I was reluctant at first but then I tried it and it was awesome! I know it sounds gross but it was so yummy and everyone on the boat tried it after. After breakfast we then sailed to Road Town. It was a fun sail because we did something called “telltale sailing.” That’s when we sail with just the jib up. Aaron calls it a “casual sail.” It was cool because since we only had the jib up, Steve and I got to lay in the hammocks while we were sailing! When we anchored, we took the dinghy to Road Town. We hung out there for a while and then the dinghy took us back to the boat. Then we sailed to Great Harbor on Peter Island. We were going to motor but then Aaron decided it would be fun to sail. We were all not so excited about having to sail because we were really tired… but we ended up having a great sail! I got to be the skipper and it was really fun!! I’m still learning so I did not go that fast (only 7.4 knots), but still the experience was really fun. When we anchored we went swimming and that was really fun! I know this sounds repetitive because I’m always saying things were “really fun,” but they were! Wait I didn’t even say my favorite part of the day! Ok, so right after we woke up we went diving and that was cool, but the most fun was when we went waterskiing/wakeboarding/kneeboarding! I went wakeboarding and learned how to jump! It took me a few tries but I ended up getting lots of air! It was a super fun day.
