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 students for this program. We hope the experiences and the memories that they created here follow them throughout their lives. And of course, we hope they all come back for more adventures next summer. Have a wonderful rest of the 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.
