Today was everyone’s last day with Sail Caribbean! It was filled with laughter, tears, and everyone exchanging information to keep in touch. Everyone packed up their stuff, lugged their bags off the boat, and said their goodbyes to the staff while waiting for the taxis.
All of the students learned and achieved so much on this beautiful journey; the entirety of the staff and I are going to miss this group of students so much! I couldn’t have asked for a better group of adventurers for this trip. I can only hope each of my following programs this summer can come even skosh close to as remarkable as these kids were.
We hope the experiences and the memories that they’ve created here follow them throughout the rest of their summer and their lives in general. And of course, we hope to potentially see them back for more programs in the summers to come. Have a great summer everyone!

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.
