Meeting in the Rain
Posted: Fri, Jul 8, 2011
Location: The Bight, Norman Island
Today we woke up on the dock in West End and it was pouring rain. Because we couldn’t sleep on deck people found interesting places to sleep. We spent the morning finishing check in and getting first day chats. We had sandwiches for lunch and then had a short time on shore to buy some snacks. And then it was bon voyage! We left West End and had our first sail. We learned how to put up our sails and some of us even learned a couple of knots. We anchored in the Bight at Norman Island for the night. We had sloppy joes for dinner that Daniel and Kirsten cooked. We took our first showers and were surprised to find they were in the ocean. We are excited for our first dive chat and spending our first night off the dock.
