Today I woke up with the realization that it’s our last full day here. I spent my morning at a skipper’s meeting to talk about the rules for the final race. We arrived promptly at the starting point at 9am. At first we were in last place but eventually we moved our way up to second place with Jake at the helm. We could’ve come in first but our tacking was a bit slow. We ended in second behind Bella Vita. I think all that matters is that everyone had a really good time and participated fully. Later today we’re docking at West End for lunch and finishing the final cleanups of the trip. Tonight is our last BBQ and I can’t wait to see everyone whose been through the same things as me in the past 2.5 weeks. It feels like I haven’t been home for a year but in a good way. I’m not ready to leave these people who have become like my family. On this trip I learned more about myself and others than I ever have before. Participating in ActionQuest was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, and I plan on keeping some lifelong friends. date:Aug 14, 2017
