Day 20 – Final Day

Location: West End, Tortola
Author: Abi A.
We woke up early today to start our big final clean up! We finished our initial clean and ate a breakfast of lemon poppy seed muffins and cereal. Skippers and the skipper shipmates then went to a meeting to discuss the big race, the Pringle Cup. Then we got ready to race!We lined up and our initial standing was 5th to the leeward side. We raced around Road Town and finished at Peter Island. Unfortunately, we came in last. Sambamba from Sailside B then raced us to West End and we won! After arriving on dock we did a final clean up then got ready to go to the BBQ. The last BBQ was so much fun and we had a great last day. The experience/trip flew by and we all can’t believe we are leaving already.So, thank you ActionQuest for the incredible experience.

Day 17- Race Day

Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
Author: Max T.
We woke up relatively early to the sun rising over the majestic island that we spent the previous day on. We had a quick breakfast then set out to finish up our sailing practical exams. We docked at West End for lunch, where some of us consumed deep-fried foot-long hot dogs. After a very filling lunch we raced the rest of sail side to get to a nice bay on Peter Island. We set anchor there and proceeded to prepare a messy feast for Mexican food right as the sun set over Tortola. We devoured tortillas stuffed with beans, cheese, ground beef and hot sauce. The numerous lights of Tortola glared at us as we fell asleep to a breezy night.

Day 16- Sandy Spit

Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
Author: Jordi O.
The day started off when we broke away from the raft in Little Harbour, Jost van Dyke. Soon after we started to do our practical exam for sailing. The first part was knot tying, then we proceeded to sail out into open water. The second part of the exam was maneuvering the boat and achieving points of sail. We had to stop early because of conditions that got extremely hard to maneuver in. We hadn’t yet seen water this rough. We sailed over to Sandy Spit where we anchored for the night. It was the most picturesque beach that we explored. You are able to circumnavigate the island in around 3 minutes. After spending some time playing in the white sand we had a lovely dinner with Mike, followed by an intriguing Lifeworks session.
