Today we awoke to a brief rain shower at Marina Cay which is located in between Beef Island and Scrub Island. After a delicious breakfast of eggs with ham, tomato, and onions we completed the pre-departure checks and reviewed our de-mooring plan. Upon de-mooring we raised the sails and headed for Cooper Island. The sail was a bit rocky as we dodged a rain shower. At Cooper the sun came out and some of us swam while the others prepared Greek pita wraps for lunch. Then divers went to shore and the rest of us went tubing and snorkeling in the afternoon. Divers returned and got some ice cream at 4:30 and then headed back to their boats. Boat showers got underway and dinner prep prepared burrito bowls which were definitely a crowd favorite. We cleaned the boat, had a boat meeting, and then everyone relaxed before bed. Everyone is excited to go diving and go for a hike at Salt Island tomorrow morning!
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.
