Parents. Parents. Wicked Good. Go alpha. Our day started early so we could begin our climb up Mt. Sage. The hike up to the highest point in the Virgin Islands took everyone between 2-3 hour and the view was worth every step. After we finished our hikes shipmates were able to call home (I miss the dogs) and have lunch on land. At 2pm we set up out for Sandy Cay, where we had a sand castle building contest with boats as teams. We made a convertible with startling accuracy. They haven’t announced the winner. But it’s probably us. After we went to Sydney’s Peace and Love for a dinner with the entire fleet. The food was great and the music as well. Transmission over. See you soon!

Cloudy Day

Location: Sommer’s Beach, Tortola

A few of us woke up extra early to do a staff only cave dive, but after not finding the mooring ball we had to go back. After going back the clouds rolled in, but we still managed a dive rotation day because divemasters can handle anything! We did a snorkel also and had an hour and ten minute dive demonstrating our final DM skills. It’s been another great day and it’s going to get better because we’re on our way to a beach BBQ with the whole fleet.

A Day on Dive Side

Location: Marina Cay
Author: Victoria
We woke up at 7am and made french toast, it was delicious! The divemasters separated themselves on dive side and Connor, Andres, Roxy, and Doug were left to run Wicked Good for the day. Sail side dove The Chimneys while dive side dove the Chikuzen, a sunken Korean refridgerator ship. there we saw 12 foot southern stingrays, many spotted eagle rays, barracudas, turtles, black tip reef sharks, giant crabs, and clams among many others. Some of us learned how to fill tanks. Then we all reunited at the boat and had chili for dinner. Tonight the divemasters have another dive chat. We are spending the night in Muskmelon Bay and can’t wait to dive here tomorrow.
