Location: The Bight, Norman Island, BVI
Today began with a great breakfast, and we quickly prepared to start our sailing practical test. The first person on the helm was Robert. Each basic sailor had to sail in a complete circle by themselves, commanding the other people to maintain the sails. It was really fun, and we all participated in this drill. Afterward, we sailed to Roadtown, where we ate lunch and met up with a few other ActionQuest boats. Lunch was good, but then we had to hustle back to the boat to get to the caves to snorkel. After the hour-long sail, we got a mooring ball and dove and snorkeled. We snorkeled along the coast and went in and out of caves as we moved along. There were many colorful fish that were playing around underwater. After the snorkeling, we went to the bay next door and settled for the night. Nick and Gwen left the boat for a meeting, and we prepared and ate dinner all by ourselves. After dinner, we did an activity where we all wrote something nice about everyone. This is to bring home the experience, and you will always remember what these people thought of you. It was incredibly meaningful to do because it brings back all the amazing memories I’ve made. Today was a spectacular day that tied together with our whole ActionQuest experience.
