Day 2 – The First Day
Posted: Fri, Jul 8, 2016
Location: White Bay, Peter Island
Today was the first full day of AQ! Today we woke up on the dock at West End, ate breakfast and had a long dock talk about rules and expectations. After that we set sail for White Bay on Peter Island. During the journey, friendships grew stronger, and all the shipmates worked as a team for the first time. We went over knots, sailing information and expectations for safety on the boat. When we arrived at White Bay, we jumped into the gorgeous clear blue water to start our swim test. This consisted of 6 laps around the boat, and 10 minutes of treading water. When we finished the swim test, we went to the bow to review scuba gear. Then we got our scuba gear together and put it on the safety rails. After that we went to the stern, and went over what we were going to do while underwater. Since this was our first dive, we reviewed skills and got back in the mode of scuba diving. We took showers after the dive, changed and got ready for dinner! The boat already feels like home, and the shipmates already feel like family! It’s a blast! P.S. Shoutout to the fam: Brooksie, Moe, Dani, and Tay and Rocket!
