Location: West End, Tortola

Today all of the shipmates arrived tired but ready to meet their boat families. Next on the agenda was a 45-minute crazy taxi ride from the airport to the dock. When we got to the dock, we were kindly greeted by our boat’s staff, Averill, Mike, and Tom. Shipmates arrived between 1:30 and 10:30. Right away we took the swim test. That night for dinner we had tortellini with sauce. After dinner, we set up our sleeping arrangements. Most people slept on deck. About an hour later we were all awakened by a rainstorm. We can’t wait to go sailing tomorrow.
