Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound

Wow! It’s already been a week. Time has flown by. It seems like just yesterday we were first boarding our boats. The people on this boat have bonded very well, and we are like a large family. Today was our third day of rotations. We learned how to read a recreational dive planner, sailed tiny Picos, played beach volleyball, and sailed an IC24. On the Picos Jan and I raced Linda and Ben for the pride of being the best sailors. Sadly, Linda and Ben won. We will get them next time. Tonight is a whole ActionQuest BBQ and beach party. It is going to be a blast. I am really looking forward to being scuba certified. We took our last written quiz today. Only the final exam and the practical part stand in our way of being open water certified divers.
