Location: Vixen Point, Gorda Sound
We started the day with some breakfast. Then we started rotations with a class on coral reefs and their importance in the ecosystem. Later on, we went on Rhodes, which are sailboats that are smaller than the ones we live on. On the Rhodes, we practiced maneuvers like tacking and jibing, as well as a man overboard scenario. After we were picked up by a dinghy and had a yummy chicken salad lunch. Then we had a dive class where we learned how to plan our dives. Then we had some time on the Picos, and that was really fun! Tonight we have a beach BBQ, and everyone is really excited. There will be good food and good music as well as a lot of dancing. The crew and I are ready to have fun! Tomorrow we are going to port, and I am also excited about that too.
