Day 2- First Day of Sailing!
Posted: Fri, Aug 1, 2014
Location: Spanishtown, Virgin Gorda
Today all us kids were awake at 5:15 for no apparent reason. We had breakfast then we headed out to Virgin Gorda. About three hours out we anchored to take the swimming test, which consisted of 8 laps around the boat and 10 minutes of treading water. We swam for a little bit, then got ready for the next 2 hours of sailing. The kids sat up front and got soaked from the waves. We caught up with Gemini and had a dance-off. Changes won and we managed to get ahead of Gemini. Changes docked in Virgin Gorda, ate dinner and spent some quality family time together. It’s only day 2 and we already feel really close. I can tell this will be an amazing end to summer.
