Day 2- First Day Sailing
Posted: Thu, Jun 16, 2016
Location: The Bight, Norman Island
Today was an incredible start to the trip we are “diving” into! After a meeting with Mike, the Sailing Curls gathered together and got the yacht off the dock! We had a pleasant sail to Norman Island, just scratching the surface of sailing terminology and how we plan to conduct the Curls for our trip! We completed a swimming test and then put on some fins and masks to begin snorkeling. Our first time in the water rejuvenated us and got us ready as well as even more excited for what our trip has in store! While we were snorkeling, a sea turtle paid us a visit. We became hungry since our cereal this morning, so our chef team for the day, Mo and Chase, helped us get some deli sandwiches made. We gained some more energy and we spent time together on the boat, submerging ourselves in the island lifestyle and life aboard. Getting into our groove, we took some salt-water showers to wash away the sleepiness from yesterday’s traveling. When dinnertime rolled around, our now professional “cheffies”, Mo and Chase, prepared Sloppy Joes, mashed potatoes, and salad for the Sailing Curls.
