Day 19: Race Day
Posted: Sat, Jul 5, 2014
Location: The Bight, Norman Island
This morning we woke up to a spectacular sunrise in Great Harbor Peter. We filled our stomachs with some mighty fine pancakes made by Amelia. Then, the shipmates of Therapy split up and decided to either scuba dive, water ski or go turtle-tagging. After those activities we all motored to Road Town, the capital of the BVIs, We enjoyed some cheeseburgers and used our phones to call home. After leaving Road Town all of the catamarans lined up to sail race to Norman Island. As we set sail we encountered a squall with winds at 35 knots and a boat speed of 9.3 knots! The race was called off and we all made it to Norman Island safely. We moored at the Bight and cooked dinner while the staff went to Mike’s boat for a meeting. Dinner tonight is macaroni with broccoli and cheddar and biscuits. Tonight is also cards night where each person writes a personal card about every other person on board. We are coming close to the end of the trip, but it sure was a great time!
