Our crew woke up today fully rested and ready to get back out into the channel for some more sailing. Once all lines were thrown, we started to make our way to the Bight on Norman Island.
During the sail, everyone became more comfortable with maneuvers such as tacking and raising sails! We picked up a mooring ball at the Bight just in time for lunch and for the divers to head to shore. Our divers hung out at the beach excited to go on their final dives before heading down island. Our non-divers headed to Fidji for a marine biology lesson! Fidji then dropped the ball and headed to the Indians for a snorkel. The Indians is located right outside the Bight and has a beautiful coral reef.
Once Fidji was back at the Bight, and all divers returned to their home boats, we all got ready for a sunset hike! Our hike went to the top of Norman island, so we got a beautiful view of the Bight and we played games such as World’s Biggest Fan and Oh Captain, My Captain.
We all had such a great day at the Bight and we said our final goodbyes to the Alpha fleet before heading to Leverick Bay tomorrow!
More photos coming soon!
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.
