Location: Savanna Bay, Virgin Gorda

Today I woke up to the beautiful sound of Manic compressing tanks. Since today was our first rotation day, we ate a cereal breakfast. After breakfast, we headed for shore to windsurf, which I am proud to say we all stayed up. Next, we headed for our ship, and waterskied, wakeboarded, and kneeboarded. I kneeboarded — lastly, my first breath in water after almost a year. For Cooper, Carly, and Carlie, it was their first breath underwater, while for Teddy, Arianna, Jack, Ethan, Simon, Caroline, Chad, and Will all returned to scuba-like pros. Today it is also Carlie’s birthday, which means cake, and another 14 year old on the boat!
