Finally Going at a High Speed

We woke up at an unusually early time. Everyone was really tired because we had to wake up at 6 am. After that, I put on my swimsuit and we ate breakfast. Then we started our voyage, as I took the lead as skipper. Our destination was the Baths on Virgin Gorda. While in the Baths we had to climb large rocks in order to jump into the crystal clear sea. We had instructions from the instructors to be back on the beach by 9. Soon after we headed to Spanishtown. Once we got there it was drizzling. When we docked the boat we got changed and Emma gave us back our phones. We were really happy. When we were heading to the restaurant I felt “landsick”, meaning that I felt like the ground was moving beneath me. When we got to the restaurant I got a hamburger and my brother got wings. They were divine. After that, I talked more with my father and mother. At 1 pm we had to return to the boat. As soon as we got to the boat we had to give back our phones and begin to sail. In the middle of our sailing trip, we reached a speed of 9 knots. I was driving until we got to the mooring ball where we stopped and took a shower. The plan for the day was to join all of the four boats of sail side A into a raft where we will spend the next two nights. Getting close to dinner people were surprised because they saw something strange. When I got to see what all the fuss was about I saw that it was a Remora. Now we’ve had a delicious dinner of beef stroganoff, and now we’re settling down for our first sail chat.
