Location: Sandy Spit, Green Cay
Today we had pancakes for breakfast, and it was my favorite breakfast so far. We also took our practical sailing Exam. We practiced skills like raising the mainsail, tacking, and picking up a man overboard (MOB). My favorite skill was picking up a man overboard. We practiced by throwing a fender that we named Jimmy into the water before making a figure eight and picking the fender up. The waves were really big today, so a lot of us got seasick and had to take a break. I also enjoyed practicing knot tying for our knot test that will be coming up soon. My personal favorite knot is the cleat hitch which we use to attach lines to the cleats on our boat. With our trip almost over, I am happy with the time I spent with my shipmates today.
