Today was an awesome day! We did so many fun things in one day that I’m surprised there was even time to write a blog. So we awoke to a beautiful sunny morning and had some delicious pancakes (yum), then we all got ready and had another super great rotation day. We started bright and early with mooring ball practice, where we had a super fun time practicing picking up mooring balls, which is what we sometimes do instead of anchoring. Now we’re all pros! Next, we all went scuba diving, and the Carina divers did their naturalist dives which is what I did, and it was superduper fun. The Vega divers did their first open water dive, and they had lots of fun. We all ran into each other underwater, and it was pretty exciting to see other divers, as well as all the cool fish that we saw. Also, the night before the Carina divers went on a night dive, which was amazing! Then we had a great lunch of grilled cheese. After lunch, we had a pretty great time in the Picos, which are small sailboats and we were all pro. We had really good wind and got nice speed. For our final rotation, we learned about navigation, which is like learning about true north and magnetic north and great things like that. We had a shower and are now settling in for pretty exciting looking Thanksgiving dinner. Then we have a pretty exciting sail chat. I’m sooo excited for tomorrow! Yay!
