This morning, the Delta crew awoke with an exciting breakfast competition, a flap jack cook off! Both boats used their cooking skills and creativity to pull off the delicious feat. They will find out the winners at the end of program during our ending ceremony and awards. Once the cook off was completed, everyone grabbed their shoes and wallets and headed off docks to explore Road town a little further. Students got to go to the local grocery store, a surf shop, and an amazing ice cream store called La Dolce Vita.
After spending the morning in Roadtown perusing for souvenirs and yummy treats, everyone returned to their home boats to get ready to set sails for Mountain Point! Mountain Point is located right outside the North Sound on Virgin Gorda, overlooking the island Seal Dog. Zanzibar was the first boat to arrive. Once anchors were set, the students learned about the unique snorkel/dive sight the Kodiak Queen and go for a snorkel! The Kodiak Queen is a wreck that was originally a vessel that was a part of the Pearl Harbor bombing but survived and was sunk last year by Richard Branson in hopes to build an underwater art/reef installation.
Later in the evening, dinner preparation got underway and everyone witnessed the beauty of the sun setting over Seal Dog. At boat meeting, students discovered that tomorrow will be Challenge day, an opportunity for students to completely take over full control and responsibility of their boat!
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.
