Students were up early due to a busy, eventful schedule today! All of our divers joined forces to sail either Meursault or Fermi to the Bight while non-divers took Montlouis to the Bitter End Yacht Club! At the Bitter End Yacht Club, which is located on Virgin Gorda, students got to enjoy a morning and part of the afternoon small boat sailing, water sporting, a hike, shops, and get pizza!
While they were sailing to Virgin Gorda, all of our divers learned about downwind sailing while traveling to Norman Island. On the way to the Bight, both boats stopped at the Indians for a quick snorkel. The Indians is a beautiful snorkel site located next to Pelican Island, which is right outside of the Bight. For lunch, we all got to enjoy pizza bagels!
Afterwards, all of our divers got ready and headed to shore for either a dive for certain skills, a confined water dive, or a fun dive. By the time divers returned, they had an hour to enjoy the beach before everyone who was at Bitter End came to join us. When the entire fleet was back together, all of our students went back to their home boats for dinner and boat meeting. Once the day was done, everyone was so tired from such an exciting day of either snorkeling and diving or small boat sailing that it was an early night. Even though everyone was tired from the full day, they were satiated with happiness. Students are very excited for the next day because we are traveling to Great Harbour!
