Today was going to be the first night passage of the trip. This meant we had to sail through the night. we were going to be taking turns to go on the watch to make sure that we were clear of any other vessels which might also be out sailing in the same waters. We needed to be in a harness whilst on watch. My group and I were second to go on watch and when we came off shift we were catching up on some much-needed sleep. During our shift, we drank energy drinks and ate trail mix and enjoyed each other’s conversation to help each other stay awake throughout the night. We arrived in Saba at about 5 am. We are pretty tired but excited to have completed our first offshore passage. I am especially excited to go diving in Saba and enjoy a long hike up to the highest point in the Netherlands Kingdom.
