Wow! We can’t believe we are already more than halfway through the trip. The shipmates of Gemini arrived as strangers but are now one big family. Not only are we having an amazing time but we are all learning new skills. The divemasters, Lindsey, Adam, and Devon have been working very hard on their coursework and have already begun assisting dives. The open water divers, Ethan, Michael and Santiago have gone from taking their first breaths underwater to being two dives away from their certifications. Meanwhile the advanced divers Matthew, Kat, Celine, Michaela, Tristan and Sami have begun working hard on navigation, fish ID, and one dive away from receiving their certifications. The shipmates are also very involved in the sail training. The first time sailors are all learning their points of sail, man overboards and so much more. The advanced sailors have really been improving their skills and working on their next certification. Everyone is getting time on the helm and really enjoying the sails. We are really looking forward to completing our circumnavigation of Tortola.
