We woke up bright and early, ready to raise our anchors and head across the channel to Scrub Island. The divers left for an early morning dive while the rest of the crews navigated the channel and completed their second docking of the program.
At docks, everyone ate a delicious lunch of pesto chicken melts and then cleaned their boats meticulously for an inspection. Once our daring fleet captain Arter approved the boats, everyone got an hour on their phones to call home to loved ones and friends and tell them all about their adventures.
Once phone were put away, everyone headed to shore, exploring the shops and resort. We splashed in the pools, slid down the radical water slide, and bounced on the water trampoline by the beach. Everyone had the best time relaxing and playing around in the water among friends.
After a long day of activity and laughter, everyone headed back to boats to prepare a Lo Mein dinner. We all took advantage of one of the best perks of dock destinations, fresh water showers!
After dinner and boat meeting, the crew settled down for bed to recharge for a new day.
The greatest challenge during the program was staying entertained during the quarantine period. Not being able to leave your boat and not having a phone, which was a crutch against boredom, it was difficult at first to stay entertained.
