Today was everyone’s last day with Sail Caribbean! It was filled with laughter, tears, and everyone exchanging information to keep in touch. The day started of a bit earlier than expected with a heavy rain storm around 6am. Our students on Fermi enjoyed the irony of being greeted with the heavy rain storm on the first day as well as saying farewell with a rainstorm on the last day.
Everyone packed up their stuff, lugged their bags off the boat, and said their goodbyes to the staff while waiting for the taxis. All of the students learned and achieved so much on this beautiful journey, the entirety of the staff and I are going to miss this group of students so much! We hope the experiences and the memories that they created here follow them throughout their lives. And of course, we hope they all come back for more programs next summer!

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.
