Day 9- On Cloud 9 On Day 9

Today was a very special day. We woke up around 6:15ish and had a light but very good breakfast of yogurt and bagels. Then we were off to our first rotation, which was man overboard drills. It was very hard picking up the fender, but also very fun. After man overboard we went to navigation, where we learned about charts. It was very interesting! After navigation we had Tuscan white bean soup for lunch! It was very tasty and filling. We went to Picos after lunch, which are very small two person sailboats. Nicole and I capsized twice but managed to get the boat back over! It was especially hard today because the wind was very shifty. After Picos we went on our second confined water dive. Sebastian was my dive partner and we finished all of our skills early so we had time to throw a frisbee around water which was so much fun! When we finished our rotations we came back to the boat and Alex and Roberto prepared a large chicken Caesar salad with corn and risotto on the side.
