Location: Savanna Bay, Virgin Gorda

Today we woke up at 6:30 to eat breakfast and prepare for the day before Mike’s introduction speech at 7:30. It was pretty early, but we were all anxious to start our first day. Mike’s speech lasted about an hour, then we all went to shore to buy any necessities before we set sail at 10. When we were all aboard we took a quick tour of the bow and we were on our way. I was skipper for the day, which was very interesting. Pulling out of the dock was a little bit challenging but once we got going things started to make more sense. Soon enough the sails were up and the motor was off. It was the perfect sailing day. After a five hour sail, we finally arrived in Virgin Gorda. We did our swim test, then ate Sloppy Joe’s for dinner. The sun is setting and the breeze feels amazing. I can’t wait for another adventurous day tomorrow. Tonight we have our first scuba chat of the session. date: Jul 31, 2017
