Day 2- Snorkel Adventures and First Sail
Posted: Thu, Jul 10, 2014
Location: The Bight, Norman Island
Today we motor-sailed to Norman Island after we listened to Mike’s “be safe” speech about not getting sunburned, being clean and not getting sick. After that we deserted the boat to buy some last minute items at the port store. Once everybody was onboard we set off for our firsts sail, even though we used the engine also. Underway we had a wonderful lunch of sandwiches. When we finally arrived it was time for us to jump into the water for the swim test. We swam for about 15 minutes or 8 times around the boat and then tread water for 10 minutes. It was all fun and games as the instructors jumped in! Finally we went snorkeling in the caves, which was really cool and apparently where pirates kept treasure. Last but not least we had our first salt water shower. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow has in store for us!
