Everyone woke up at 5:30 a.m. this morning to see the first round of students off. Students and accompanying staff grabbed granola bars, apples, and oranges, exchanged goodbye hugs, and hopped into the cab. The next round of students departed at 8:00 a.m., and then it was all quiet here at Hodges Creek Marina. Camper-less is not a feeling that suits us.
Early Alpha adventurers, we absolutely cannot believe how fast these two weeks flew by. Every single staff member was impressed by how fun, respectful, funny, and cool every single camper was on our program. We will definitely hold on to the memories we all made together. We hope that every single student can look back on this trip and remember hilarious times, and when they’re facing a challenge, want to remember all the amazing things that they accomplished together in just two short weeks. We are so grateful to have had such an amazing group that made this an amazing program.
We wish each and every student a fantastic rest of their summer, and we hope everyone manages to stay in touch with each other and with us here at Sail Caribbean! We hope to see some of you back 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.
