Location: Sommer's Beach, Tortola
Today we started our day with a delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs. Then we rigged the Zests and had two races. Zeke and I won our race, it was close, but Brandon and Elizabeth turtled right before the finish line. After we got to sail in the pouring rain and hike off the Zests, which was my favorite part of the day. After Zesting, we prepared Imane to sail and headed out. We practiced man overboard drills using points of sail and working together as a crew. While sailing back to Tortola, we saw a huge squall in the distance, and we turned into the wind. There were a few minutes of controlled chaos as we all raced to bring down the sails as the squall hit. Standing under the bimini together watching the rain will be one of my most memorable moments of the trip. Then we continued on to Sommer’s Beach to anchor. Both dive and sail side and GoBeyond met to have a BBQ. We are all looking forward to watching the sunset from the beach.
