Day 12- Sail Day
Posted: Mon, Aug 11, 2014
Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
Today started by everybody waking up at 7am and having scrambled eggs for breakfast. After breakfast and cleanup it was time for sailing. The beginner sailors began practice practicals for the real test. The Carina’s don’t have an actual sailing practical but are marked on participation and leadership. The main thing we did while sailing was man overboard drills. Timmy the fender was extra clumsy today and we had to rescue Timmy around 11 times. After Timmy was finally saved we made way for Sandy Spit for the beach party. We anchored at Lava Flow beach for lunch. The waves caused the boat to roll heavily and made the food and drinks fly everywhere. After lunch we lifted anchor and headed to Sandy Spit. Sandy Spit is the smallest island ever. A full walk around the island is about 3 minutes. At 6 the BBQ started. There were hamburgers, hot dogs and cookies. I’m not exactly sure when we got back, but after the BBQ we went back to the boats and showered and went to bed.
