Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
This morning we woke up after a very relaxing slumber. The boat was already on the go for the day. We had a very relaxing breakfast, which consisted of bagels and yogurt on deck in our very beautiful anchorage of Mountain Point. Today is another of many rotation days, which concluded with Pico sailing (small boats), water sports, and our first open water dives in the afternoon. During the Pico, sailing many of my fellow Pico members tipped their boats. At the end, they ended the activity with a small race that my friend Alexander won with Samara. After the group split and had a fun time out on the waterskiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding. I successfully got up on the waterskis and had a nice ride through the BVI. Matthias also shredded in up pretty hard out there on the kneeboard. Rex made a great attempt with the wakeboard, while Samara spotted and took pictures. After a short time out on the water, we returned to the boat for grilled cheese, which was prepared, by Alexander and Reid. We prepared for our first open water dives. The dive was the best one yet! The scenery was amazing. The ocean floor
was filled with beautiful fish and covered with coral. The dive made everyone really excited for the upcoming dives. After the dive, we got a lift back. Emma, Claybourne, Samara and Reid. Reid prepared our Thanksgiving dinner, and it was one of the best, if not my favorite Thanksgivings yet. It ended with Jake, Emma and Reid jumping in the water and having our nightly squeeze up on the bow, which was of course Alexander’s idea. The night ended with a dance party to some sick new beats and doing dishes. This evening, we will be having another sail chat in preparation for our exam. Today was an awesome day in the BVI.
