First Day = Arrival, Swim Tests, and New People

As soon as I woke up from San Juan, Puerto Rico, I saw all the beautiful islands of the BVI and USVI. It was a beautiful sight. The flight only took about 40 minutes, then we were landing on the island of Tortola. There we took a bus/taxi in which there were 20 ActionQuest shipmates. We met a lot of each other on the bus during the 30 minutes until we arrived at West End. There we saw a long line of sailboats with ActionQuest flags on the mast. They sent each of us to our corresponding boats and told us how everything would work. Afterwards we did our swim tests which were pretty easy. We also saw some stores in the marina bay. We then went back to the boat. Mahi Mahi means dolphin fish.
