Day 13- Racing Day 1
Posted: Wed, Aug 10, 2016
Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
I was woken up this morning by a gentle poking to silently set up Griffin’s surprise ActionQuest birthday party. The whole crew was seated around the cake and had their cards in hand. Smash woke Griffin up and told him there was a surprise waiting for him. We was delighted by our plan and told us all a huge thanks. After a sugary breakfast, we soon set sail and practiced sail circles. Many hours later, we finally caught a glimpse of the land that promised the return of our cell phones. West End was our original dock from the first day and houses many charming shops and people. We spent a couple of hours stocking up on junk food, buying souvenirs, contacting our parents, and most importantly, using the free Wi-Fi. When our shore time finished, Griffin and I attending the organization meeting for a sailboat race. It took us approximately two hours of hard work, the skills of everyone onboard and a healthy dose of sweat to come in second place. Although we might not have won, we have built the basis to a solid team for the final race. As we set anchor at the finish line, I can only incredulously stare at the remaining days of our voyage and hope the time we have left will be as incredible as what we have experienced until now.
