Day 13- First Race Day
Posted: Wed, Aug 10, 2016
Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
Today was our first race day. In the morning, we sailed over to West End and refilled on water. Afterwards we got some shore time where we ate lunch and went snack shopping. Next, we raced from West End to Peter Island. It was a close race and in the end, we came in third place. Unmentioned in our previous blogs, because of timing, was a surprise ice cream trip. Here’s the story: two nights ago, at about 8 at night, we drove over to a boat called Sambamba. Mike, the director of AQ, was giving a chat on it. We approached stealthily and hid in his dinghy Big Blue. After about 20 minutes, he came out and found our entire boat in his dinghy. We all held up our money and shouted in unison, “we’re ready for ice cream!” After getting over his surprise, Mike was forced to drive us to Marina Cay in Big Blue to get ice cream. After gorging ourselves, we returned to our boat. This was definitely one of our trip highlights.
