Waking up to a dazzling morning sun, we sleepily prepared breakfast before heading to shore at Diamond Cay, where we partook in a jaunt to the bubbly pools! After a bit of splashing, we turned back around and dinghied back to our boats and made ready to raise anchor.
We said farewell to our beautiful anchorage off of Sandy Spit, and made our way to Sandy Cay, only a short motor away. We then dropped anchor and had a swim over to the white sandy shores, where we frolicked in the water and enjoyed some beach activities and team building games.
Afterwards, we headed back to our boats to raise anchor once again and head to Little Harbour, Jost Van Dyke, where we picked up a mooring ball. After some relaxing time on our boats, we headed to shore for a social evening with the whole fleet. We had dinner at the local restaurant, Sydney’s Peace & Love. Once we were filled to the brim, we headed back to our boats to recover from our food comas. We had plenty to discuss for the day at boat meeting, and afterwards hit the hay, exhausted from another beautiful day in the BVI.
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.
