Day 18 – Swag Me Out (Last Day in the Leeward Islands)
Posted: Sat, Jul 26, 2014
Location: Underway to BVI
Today was our last day at the Leeward Islands. We started off the day with a breakfast of oatmeal, a personal favorite of mine. Right after breakfast, we had to take our advanced sailing tests, which were challenging to say the least. Afterwards we enjoyed our last bit of free time on the island of St. Barths. To sum St. Barths up in one sentence; a can of coke cost 4 Euros. We departed from the dock at about 3 in the afternoon, where watch team 2 started the sail with the first watch duty. Shortly after 6, when watch team 1 started their first watch of the afternoon, a pod of dolphins were spotted on the bow. It was great to watch them jump in the boats wake. Then we sailed through the whole night to our final destination of the British Virgin Islands.
