Wind Shadow Staff Update Day 21

Location: Jake, Kayleigh, and Emma
Author: West End, Tortola
As these three spectacular weeks draw to a close, we cant believe how much of a wonderful whirlwind this has been. We have come together as a team, worked through challenges and had some of the best days ever. We will certainly miss our crew- Rexs sense of humor, Mathias quick wit, and Reids clever boat jokes. We will miss Kayleighs deep discussions, Claibornes honest goodwill and Nicoles infectious laugh. Mias dry humor and Samaras big smile have brought a little more sunshine every morning, and Supriyas enthusiasm has upped the positive energy. We will miss Owens kindness, and Alexs resourcefulness, especially during meal prep. Most of all, we will miss those times when we all laughed so hard our sides were aching. There will certainly be tears as our eleven adventurers head down to dock with their duffel bags, sun kissed and windblown and ready to share their stories with loved ones back home. We wish them all fair winds, wherever their paths may lead.

Our Last Full Day at Sea

I would like to address my shipmates as I write this blog, because as I reminisce about our time together I feel a sharp pang because its all coming to the end. We had our biggest race today, from The Bight at Norman Island to Road Harbor and then onto the finish line at Great Harbor, Peter Island. I think the race showed perfectly, just how far weve come together as a team, all of us working cohesively and effectively to come in third across the finish line. It has been an honor to crew and learn beside all of you and I have enjoyed your company immensely. Sailing aboard Wind Shadow has been some of the most fun Ive ever had and I have made memories here that I will cherish forever. From the hikes to the squeezes to our dives I feel like I have gotten to know each and every one of you as well as someone can in the course of just a few short weeks, and some of you, I feel, I have gotten to know even better. As we all go back to our homes and our lives outside of ActionQuest, I would like you all to know that you have made a difference and an impact in my life, and probably the lives of all our shipmates aboard our boats.
