Sambamba Staff Update Day 21

Posted: Fri, Jul 28, 2017


Location: West End, Tortola
Author: David, Maddy, and Casey
It seems like just yesterday we were leaving West End and raising our sails, when really it was actually 21 days ago. Since then we have worked together as a team to overcome challenges, push ourselves to grow, and became closer to form the amazing, one and only, Sam-Bam Fam. We spent our last day on the water doing what we love best; sailing, dancing and singing the song Tropics. We competed the sail race with Toby on the helm and Graham on the main sheet. We had Gwen and Brooke as spotters as we raised our main halyard and everyone else jumped in when needed and provided moral support and entertainment. Our last dive on the Rhone was a huge success. Being able to dive the wreck after all of the hard work was exhilarating. We saw a huge porcupine fish, tarpon and even the propeller of the Rhone herself. All of our divers passed their SCUBA test with flying colors and this was really evident by the responsible way they managed themselves underwater. Ben, Yoav, Emilia, and Jason (Team Diva) with celebrity guest Logan, raved about the dive and couldn’t wait to start planning their next dive adventures with their families. Not only did the Sam-Bam Fam ace their diving exams and earn their certifications, they all did an amazing job during their sailing practicals. David and Casey couldn’t stop raving about how good of a job the group had done during their man overboard drills and sailing circles. Our advanced sailors, Paul and Yoav, worked hard studying for their advanced sailing and VHF test to put to use all of the new knowledge they had acquired from working with David these past 3 weeks. We can’t believe it’s all come to a close and we are sad to see you all go, but from our last night’s squeeze question, it seems pretty obvious we will be seeing all of your faces around the dock here next year. We will miss you Sam-Bam Fam! date:Jul 28, 2017
