The day started with the man overboard skill. Everybody had to steer the helm and do the other things they have to do, but not everyone finished the skills because we had to go. After this skill we had to sail to West End where we started this trip. When we arrived we filled the water up and went to land. We got our phones and our spending money.The most shipmates went to eat lunch or went shopping in the supermarket. When everyone went back to the boat and waited, Ruth and I went again on land. First we went to the boat shop to buy something for our boat, and then we went to a skipper’s meeting. At the skipper’s meeting we talked with the other skippers over the race that we made. Every skipper had to grab a number out of a hat and that was our starting number. We had number 6. When the race started we were all excited because we won the last race. First Zourite was 1, Tiger Pause was 2 and we were 3. To win the race we had to do very much tacks. After ten minutes we were number 1. It was a cool and awesome race. After an hour we were first and nobody was to see because we were so fast. And we won the race after 2 1/2 hours sailing. We were the first when we came to the finish line but we were the last ones who anchored. We went showering and prepared dinner. We were very late because we have to eat between 5-6 today but we ate at 7:30. And now we have to clean up, doing squeeze and the last sailing chat because we are going to write the sail exam tomorrow.
