Location: Marina Cay
Today was a fantastic day. We started the day sailing and mastering jibing. We traveled to collect water at Scrub Island, which though still in repair from Hurricane Irma, was beautiful as the water was crystal clear. We all then sailed on to Trellis Bay where we had some shore time to shop and stock up on snacks, get food, and call home. Once we all had lunch, we rushed to the shop next door to stock up on snacks. The shop’s shelf was empty! After buying our food, we quickly hurried back to the boat to pick up some close-toed shoes and then were dropped back off at the beach where we started a beach cleanup. The crew of Sans Souci was on metal duty- we had to pick up big beams of metal and move them to a different spot. It was tough work as it was hot and the beams were massive, but we all worked well as a team, and I think afterward we all felt a great sense of accomplishment. Once we got back to the boat, we showered, had food, and sat down to listen to a talk from Jim Tuman. His speech was eye-opening and hit home for some of us. Today showed us a new side of the world, and it gave us a lot to think about.
