Day 3- Magic School Boat
Posted: Fri, Jun 17, 2016
Location: Savanna Bay, Virgin Gorda
Today we woke up in our hammocks right before sunrise to see the beautiful Norman Island and we got ready because we all had the big sailing day ahead of us. So, we started off with some really good eggs!! They were the best I have ever had. Once we were all full we were told by our instructors that it would be a challenge to put up our mainsail while still on the mooring ball and it worked great, and it was a really fun learning experience. As we got underway, we tried a lot of new things like rolling out our jib sail, which made us go so much faster!! After our six-hour sail on the Drake Channel, which felt like way less, we were having so much fun. Additionally, we had a short dance off with another boat, which was awesome!! We arrived at Virgin Gorda with beautiful clear waters we jumped in the water and took our showers then ate dinner yum. We finally got ready for bed and went to bed screaming about what fun we’re gonna have the next day. Well that’s my experience on day 3.
