Location: West End, Tortola

As the second to last day finished, we had a plentiful amount of sleep in order to succeed in the upcoming race. After Austin repeatedly announced it was race day, we were obliged to be awake and attentive. While the skipper attended the race briefing, the other students had breakfast. We proceeded and raised the mainsail to commence the race. It was a relatively calm day, which was the perfect conditions to finish the session. We were unfortunately in last, however, we gradually improved to come in sixth place. Soon after we began a thorough clean of every surface of the boat. We had shore time after we finished, and then prepared for our last BBQ. We talked, ate, and most importantly we rejoiced about the last few weeks as a family. Date: Jul 27, 2017
