Day 2 First Day Of Sailing
Posted: Thu, Jul 9, 2015
Location: White Bay, Peter Island
Today I woke up to music and the bright sunshine. After eating breakfast we all meet and the head director talked to the whole group about how to make the trip the best. I liked how he said that it is up to you to make memories. He provides the boats but everything is up to you. Later we set out and finally the journey began. We sailed to a new destination surrounded by cute little islands. I learned new knots and the directions of the wind. My favorite part of the day was getting into the water even if we had to swim 6 laps around the boat and tread water for 10 minutes. I feel like the group has already started to bond through bad jokes and dance parties. I think the whole group enjoyed getting a refresh on diving skills. Later in small groups we dove and went over skills. We ended the day by eating Sloppy Joe’s while the sun went down. I definitely was a little nervous but the instructors and my group made it fun and easy. I know I can definitely ask anyone for advice or help because so far everyone has been really nice. I can’t wait to make more memories with this group!
