We started the day off early, the days cooks and I up early to prepare breakfast and attend a skipper’s meeting. After the meeting, which briefed us on our race course for the day, Gordo and I returned to the boat. We were very glad to find everyone awake and the coffee ready. We readied all the sails and started for the start line almost immediately. The start went well. Changes won by half the race, but the boats were rather well matched. We came in second. After our race we changed course to West End. While sailing over we began to clean the cabins, galley, and salon of the boat. Once we arrived we had only the floors and deck left to clean. We finished before the other boats, thanks to our teamwork, and we went out to West End for lunch. It was a busy, full day; I think that is what we all needed to keep our minds off the goodbyes we will say so soon. I look forward to the last BBQ tonight as a wonderful goodbye party. I really will miss everyone.
