This morning the divers headed out and the rest of the group either jumped in a Colgate (mostly students from Thor) or a Catamaran and sailed over to The Bight Bay off of Norman Island. The weather has been perfect with only a few very short squalls during the day. The boats hooked a mooring ball at Norman and made BLTs for lunch.
After the first group of divers got back, everyone headed over to The Indians archipelago for a snorkel. The Indians are easy to spot due to the four pinnacles that rise from the water. It is one of the best snorkeling spots, filled with colorful fish and corals. After the snorkel, some of the students from Kajsa joined Stella for a bit. It was great to see our oldest and youngest boats hanging out and teaching each other how to flip off the boat.
To wrap up the day, students had some time to relax on their boats before prepping dinner, cleaning and boat meetings. Kajsa had a fancy dinner party, Mamma Mia themed, and created a beautiful three-course menu. As the sun went down, a dance party started up on Moet. Overall, it was the perfect Sail Caribbean night.
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.
