Day 7- Day Of Learning
Posted: Thu, Aug 4, 2016
Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
Today was a splendid day! After an amazing beach party, many were tired after an early awakening, but once everyone fully woke up the crew enjoyed a relaxing sail around Gorda Sound. We learned how to jibe and tack. It was fun and interesting as we improved our sailing skills. We then anchored at Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda. After eating lunch we continued our PADI training towards our scuba certifications. We finished our confined water dives. Some shipmates saw an octopus during their training. Everyone is ecstatic for our first open water dive, where we will finally be able to fully explore the wonders of the ocean. Everyone by now has become more experienced underwater. Next came a sailing chat about emergencies at sea, as the weather didn’t allow us to practice what happens if a person goes overboard. Tonight will conclude our day of learning with a review session for our scuba certification exam. It was really interesting learning new things and it felt unique having the beautiful view of Virgin Gorda in the background.
