Location: West End, Tortola
The shipmates on Calypso have had an awesome 17 day adventure sailing and scuba diving around the BVI. As it comes to an end, everyone gathers together to reflect on just how special it has been. From the very beginning the group clicked and from then have just grown closer and closer. All the shipmates have gained their IYT and PADI certifications, all ending with a beautiful morning sail over to the RMS Rhone dive site to do their first dive as certified divers. On the sailing side everyone completed sailing circles, man overboards, trimming the sails, and bringing Calypso all around the BVI. Apart from the sailing and diving, the team has been busy wakeboarding, knee boarding, windsurfing, dinghy driving, knot tying and having beach BBQs. All in all this session has flown by in the blink of an eye, just like Calypso flies by all the other boats in the regatta. We have all grown so much and sailed so far. May this wonderful experience stay in our minds for the rest of the year until we can return to the beautiful BVI!
