Location: West End, Tortola

Starting off the day at The Bight, we had an early morning getting ready for the “Big Race.” After having an early skipper’s meeting, we set sail to the starting line for the race. After ten long minutes waiting for the race to start, we finally took out the jib and started the race. After starting out strong going around 8.5 knots, we fell off a bit and sat at around 7.8 knots the rest of the race. At the end, we got a solid 5th place. After finishing the race, we started the long motor back to West End. When arriving at West End, we started the “Big Clean.” After a long day of sailing and cleaning, we are going to end a great trip with the final barbecue.
