We were woken up to the sound of our morning play list once again, and our last full day of ActionQuest was underway. Breakfast was oatmeal or cereal, depending on personal preference. Following breakfast I left for a skippers meeting to brief us on the race that was soon to commence. I returned to the boat full of energy and music blaring throughout the boat. There were trophies and medals on the line, and we wanted to win the race once again. Our boat pulled up to the starting line and the other boats soon followed behind. We pulled up our mainsail and we were ready to begin. Our boat jumped to an early start, which only grew as time passed. The boat was excellently helmed by Natalie, Annalee and Harriet. As we looked back on while crossing the finish line, there was a magnificent view of the entire fleet and a huge island (Tortola) in the background. Following our victory, our boat headed back to port for the night and the crew scattered throughout to start cleaning. The day is still young and we will be having our third and final BBQ tonight, which may be the last time we see some of our friends. These 16 days have been amazing and I am not fully ready for this trip to come to a close.
