Day 19- Salt Island Day

Location: The Bight, Norman Island
Author: Joao M.
Waking up at 5:45 in the morning wasn’t an easy task but it was worth it. We arrived at Salt Island before everyone else to dive the RMS Rhone wreck, both the Open Waters and the Advanced diving together. Setting our gear up in the wavy ocean was pretty difficult but when we got in the water and descended it was simply AWESOME! After that we had Changes shipmates aboard to do our IYT sailing theoretical tests which everybody was confident about. Then we went on a walk on Salt Island where there are gorgeous views in the hills. Right now we are sailing to the Bight, Norman Island to spend the night and tomorrow is race day, for which I think everybody is pretty anxious.

Day 18- Road Town

Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
Author: Hellie S.
Today was another pancake day! After breakfast, the advanced divers left for a dive. For the Vegas, we had a final waterskiing day! It was a quick one too because soon we had to sail over to Road Town. On our way over I was on the helm for a part of our hour long sail.Once we got to the Road Town harbour we set our anchor and then took the dinghy to the dock. There we had a little over two hours to relax in town with friends. We walked around town for awhile, then went to a restaurant and got gelato afterwards. We all met up at the dock after and went back to our sailboat.Then we sailed back to Great Harbour, Peter Island where we were earlier in the day. Once we got back we were able to swim around and play in the water before dinner. For dinner we had breakfast! In addition to our wonderful meal, Mike, the director, came over for dinner. I’m so excited for tomorrow when we dive the Rhone!

Day 15- Conquering Mt. Sage: Another One For The Resume

Location: Sidney’s, Jost van Dyke
Author: Will D.
Today was most definitely the longest day at AQ. I woke up at 5:45 and went to Cane Garden Bay to hike the Mt. Sage ridge line and the mountain itself. It was worth it though because I had an amazing banana smoothie. After I got back to the ship we went to Sandy Cay and built sandcastles (we built Stonehenge). Then we went to Little Harbour for a beach BBQ and a reggae performance!
