We woke up after a night of passing rain storms on docks at Nanny Cay Marina. Right after breakfast, the divers got on the dive boat and headed out for their morning dives. Mia completed her Advanced Open Water certification with a navigation dive while Michael worked towards his Search and Recovery specialty (and even found a quarter underwater!)
The non-divers spent the morning around Nanny Cay. Thomas and Braeden took part in a review session for their Basic Keelboat certification. Mitchell strolled around the dock-side shops with friends before joining everyone for the truck tour of Tortola. Karina and Amanda both loved the truck tour and took some great photos from the island’s peaks!
After lunch, Oliver took the helm as skipper of the day and de-docked us very smoothly. For the de-docking, Dylan was a roaming fender and successfully protected our boat from the edges of the docks. After de-docking, Oliver organized the crew for a quick raising of the sails and executed a few tacks while underway! We made it safely to Key Point, Peter Island and anchored for the first time. When Braeden was snorkeling the anchor, he also saw a spotted eagle ray! After dinner and a beautiful sun set, we laid out on the deck to stargaze and all members of the crew saw a few shooting stars!

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.
