Bravo 1 & Charlie 1 2015 – Day 13

written by Photography mate, Erin Wildermuth, Brought to you by the crew of Rioja

A full day of diving for Charlie participants left every diver exhausted today. Diving began at 8:30am during which time, the non-divers explored the island of Tortola by truck. They saw all the views, visited Aragorn’s farm and stopped for beverages. Charlie loved hanging out on Galilee for the day, where he organized a soiree of sorts.

Challenge day began in the afternoon once the divers had returned Isabelle, Adam and Nic were the dream team combo for skipper, mate and navigator. All the boats successfully circumnavigated Guana island without any adult assistant – go team! We moored at Marina Cay for the evening.

On Rioja, Jules and Parker cooked a scrumptious dinner of chicken and hot dogs. While an odd combination, the kids enjoyed the variety and generally chose one or the other. After dinner the divers went at it again! On their night dive, Jade, Adrianna, Isabelle and James saw an octopus. Avery saw a giant lobster. Sleep came easily and quickly after such a busy day.

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.
