Day 15

The fleet woke up after a fun filled day at Anegada and ate from a yummy breakfast buffet spread. We then set sail to Oil Nut Bay on Virgin Gorda. The closer we sailed to Virgin Gorda Anegada’s fragile shape disappeared into the sea, like Atlantis! We knew we had reached the Eustasia Sound by our charts of course, but just as simply by watching the water change from a deep royal blue to a brilliant turquoise.

One by one we made our way through the channel into the Oil Nut Bay. We awaited our docking instructions from our Fleet Captain before making our approach. Our fenders were at the ready, dock lines tossed and we were docked at gorgeous Oil Nut Bay around noon. Once on the docks, students ate lunch and then everyone worked together to give their boats a true deep clean.

When the boat passed a cleaning inspections,  students made their way over to Oil Nut Bay Marina Village where they were able to shop, lounge, swim in the pool, and socialize with other boats for a few hours. The Marina’s shop was cleared of Oreos in the first 30 minutes! Chips and candy were also taken quickly.

Around 5:00, students returned to their boats for dinner, dinner clean, and a boat meeting. At 7:00, a dock social commenced and students walked between boats to catch up with friends, take tours of the other boats, and meet new people. Following the social, everyone returned to their own boats to power down and get ready for bed. Overall, campers had a relaxing time on shore and got to spend the day unwinding and making new friends!

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.
