Today after breakfast and a beautiful sunrise, we got right into a review of navigation diving. The Rescue, Dolphin, and Neptune groups split up to go over our knowledge reviews and then we all reviewed compasses in preparation for our first skills dive. After a briefing and gearing up, we jumped in the water with our buddy, descended and completed our 3 navigation tasks. Shortly after our navigation dive, we did our second dive of the day: a fun dive on the Fearless wreck. This sunken ship is one of the older wrecks in the BVIs and was super cool to get to explore with all of our shipmates. After our last dive of the day, we went to Road Town to pick up some new tanks and get a bit of shore time. After restocking our boat, we had a great time riding waves on the trampoline and getting to know each other more on our way to the next anchorage. Next it was time to shower, while dinner was finished being prepared. Now that we are out of the water until tomorrow morning, it is time to head to our neighboring boats on dive side for rescue and night dive lectures. Today was a super busy day and Happy Our is coming together to be an AMAZING boat!
