Location: Leverick Bay, Virgin Gorda
Today was an incredible day. We had a rotation day where we windsurfed, learned about coral, wakeboarded and waterskiied, snorkeled, and learned to tie knots for sailing. We started the day off with windsurfing, a fun and refreshing way to start the day. Leah, Morgan, and Rob were able to catch the wind and sailed incredibly on their boards. We then learned about coral conservation, and Leah was especially interested in how coral can be used for a variety of different uses, such as bone implants for bones that would usually be impossible to repair. It was very important to learn about how to protect these coral reefs from dangers like global warming and deforestation because of how valuable they are to ocean life and beautiful to tourists. The next rotation took us to wakeboarding and waterskiing, my favorite part of the day. Rob is becoming amazing at jumping on the water and Kenny was able to stay on the board longer than he ever had before. We then moved to knot tying, where Mel and Charli showed impressive skills in the field. We finished the rotation with scuba diving and incredibly fun learning experience. We had the rare and amazing opportunity to see a stingray, my first time witnessing one. Morgan and Ellie especially enjoyed the snorkeling and completed many dives to get a closer look at the plant life. Johnny showed impressive snorkeling skills with swimming through the water safely and clearing water from his snorkel. We are now headed to a BBQ that is sure to be a ton of fun.
