Day 13- #Sailing
Posted: Wed, Aug 10, 2016
Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
After a fun BBQ last night we woke up to the beautiful sun in Sandy Spit. We started the day with cereal and fruit. Then we were off to the West End of Tortola. On the way we took our practical sailing test, which had the crewmembers take turns tacking and jibing. We then arrived in West End where we had shore time, aka we ate a lot! After our feast everyone returned to the boat except for myself, who had to be briefed on our race. Afterwards I went back to the boat, where we began our race. The beginning went well but we then realized that our jib was potentially broken, so we pulled out of the race and used our motor. We ended up arriving in Peter Island and immediately went for a swim. We then had delicious burritos for dinner. We are about to have our last sail chat before our written test tomorrow. Today has been an awesome day filled with lots of fun and laughs.
