Location: West End
Today we woke up the same as the other days, but I was especially tired due to the reason that I was up so late writing my cards to the other shipmates. After dragging myself out of bed I was happy to see that the prank Nick and I planned worked out perfectly and everyone had a great laugh. When breakfast ended Jack and I went to Pelican Pat, where we had the skipper’s meeting for the race. We showed up in our racing uniforms, which involved wearing fancy underwear on the outside of our pants and wearing an equally cool shirt. After the meeting we lined up for the race. We were in between the Prosecutor and Zourite in the second position. The race started and Zourite was ahead of us right away. It was difficult to catch up, but we kept a good distance. We stayed in second place the whole way, right up until the end. Although we didn’t win, finishing in second place was really fun. Following the race we went to the dock and started cleaning. Being back where we started has made me sad that the trip is over but I’ve had such a great time. As much as I’m sad to leave, I’m excited to go home and see my family again.
