The amazing crew of Vivaldi arose from a deep sleep at the horrifying hour of 5 am for a sunrise hike of Virgin Gorda. On the way up, Liza got us lost (we found our way back eventually). Devin, Christian, Arturo, and Jarad ran up most of the way. We took many selfies at the top before heading down.We ate breakfast before heading ashore again for a marine biology lesson and a full day to soak up the atmosphere at the Bitter End Yacht Club. We had the chance to try out some watersports and small boat sailing, visit the stores and relax at the beach.
In the evening Jorge and Nico cooked amazing chili, Liza led us in our Vivaldi cheers, Aysha quoted Rush Parks and maintained the perfect amount of sass! We had a great visit from the Chileans who judged both our chili and performance. It was a fun and energetic day and we are all ready for some sleep!
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.
